Dr. Don Bergman accompanied Mrs. Marie Assir, Head of Counselling, and students from Grade 11 on a US College Tour. It included: Columbia, New York University, Parson’s New School of Design, Fordham, Yale, University of Pennsylvania, Villanova, Lafayette, Lehigh, Princeton, Wharton, and Rutgers. This trip is intended to orient students who are keen to continue their education in the USA to some of the colleges to which they might be interested in applying.
On the local front, Admissions Reps from LAU and AUB will be addressing the 12th grade students on November 15 and October 25 respectively. The Secondary School is organizing a college fair for the other local universities. In order to give both parents and students the opportunity to be exposed to the new programs at other universities, it will be held on a Wednesday afternoon. The date and venue will be announced shortly.
