Each college has something distinctive to offer. As a group, they place great value on student-faculty interaction, small classes, and challenging curricula. These colleges send a high percentage of graduates on to graduate and professional schools, and count among their alumnae/i leaders in virtually every field. This free program includes presentations on admission, financial aid, and each of the eight colleges. There is also ample opportunity to ask questions.
