The College of Office Advising hosted the annual Upper-Mid Forum from Jan. 20-22 virtually this year. Families and students were able to attend a variety of sessions via Zoom and heard from colleagues at Kenyon, Carleton, UVM, Penn, Haverford, and Dartmouth about various aspects of college admissions and financial aid. The two-day program featured a full range of topics, including thoughts on how the pandemic, economy, social issues around equity and justice, access, and opportunity have impacted the current application landscape.
The six advisors in the College Advising Office have developed a wealth of knowledge about colleges and universities across the United States and beyond. They bring this — together with a deep understanding of the intricacies of the application process — to the journey they take with each Hotchkiss student.
