HARN Flyer

From: HARN (Houston Area Recruiters Network)

To: Class of 2021

As we approach summer, we are abundantly aware that our future rising seniors have missed educational programming for the college planning and admissions process.  In an attempt to help fill in the gaps, we are hosting a Summer Search Series to prepare students for their academic future.  Multiple universities, representing public, private, in-state and out-of-state institutions, are offering this series of virtual college planning sessions throughout the summer, free of charge, to any interested students and their families.  

Each month, we tackle a college planning theme with a topical presentation, followed by an interactive Q&A session with four college representatives.  Join HARN on the following dates:

 

July 16 – Admissions 101

July 23 – Finding the Right Fit: Campus Visits & Culture 

July 30 – Polishing your Application: Tips on Applications, Essays, & Resumes

August 6 – Financing Your Education: Scholarships and Financial Aid 

All sessions will be held from 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM.  The registration link is included in the flyer, or students can register here.  Prior to the event, students will receive a reminder email and Zoom link to access the meeting.

Emory University, Johns Hopkins University, University of Notre Dame, and Washington University in St. Louis Invite you to their

Virtual Consortium


Because this is a new format for our consortium group, here are a few notes:

  • All the events will be live, not prerecorded.
  • While we are offering six sessions, each one will cover similar content. Students are encouraged to attend only one session, allowing space for as many viewers as possible.
  • Due to large crowds anticipated, we will not be taking live questions. Students can submit questions ahead of time on their registration form, and our representatives will do their best to cover them through the session content.

Virtual College Fair

We are excited for you to join us in a Virtual College Fair with some of our Houston Area Recruiters from universities in Texas and surrounding states!  Simply click on the link to watch a short video to learn more about the university, as well as meet our local university representatives.  They are here to help answer any questions you may have, and would love to hold a Q&A Session.  Below the links to the university videos, the link to submit your questions is posted for you again.  Please post your questions by the end of the week, so that we can have our representatives get together to bring you the Q&A Session before school is out.  Enjoy!

Upcoming Deadline Adjustments

Dual Credit deadlines will be adjusted as needed.  We will have to see when all facilities will be up and running including LSC for placement testing.  In the meantime, students can prepare for the TSI here.

Seniors, continue to work on your local scholarship applications. Please make a list of items you will need upon return (letters of recommendation, transcripts, etc.). The updated deadline for now is April 17th.

The Mock ACT will need to be rescheduled.  Once I have more information, I will give those of you who registered the option to cancel and receive a refund if needed.
 
Stay well!
