Col­lege Week

Rappahannock News - - SCHOOLS -

Twenty-three col­leges are par­tic­i­pat­ing in the 2019 Vir­ginia Pri­vate Col­lege Week, em­pha­siz­ing qual­ity and af­ford­abil­ity of pri­vate higher ed­u­ca­tion dur­ing spe­cial ses­sions for prospec­tive stu­dents and fam­i­lies.

Col­leges from July 22-27 will of­fer cam­pus tours and in­for­ma­tion ses­sions about aca­demic pro­grams, ad­mis­sions, fi­nan­cial aid, and stu­dent life. Col­lege of­fi­cials will also ad­dress some of the com­mon myths about the cost of a pri­vate col­lege ed­u­ca­tion. Par­tic­i­pat­ing stu­dents will re­ceive three col­lege ap­pli­ca­tion fee waivers, sav­ing money when ap­ply­ing to col­lege.

“Vis­it­ing cam­puses in per­son is one of the most im­por­tant steps in the col­lege search process,” ex­plains Robert Lam­beth, Pres­i­dent of CICV. “I en­cour­age par­ents to ex­plore which col­lege will be the best fit for their son or daugh­ter, and I want to re­as­sure them that a qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion at a Vir­ginia pri­vate col­lege is af­ford­able and within reach.”

Ses­sions at most col­leges will be­gin at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Mon­day through Fri­day, and at 9 a.m. on Satur­day. V is itwww. va pri­vate col­leges. org
