The Visit of a Lifetime

With summer in full throttle, there is a great place you can go for a visit! And no, I am not talking about Disney World; I’m talking about the Fisher campus! With July beginning this week Fisher will be offering additional visit opportunities to our wonderful 154 acre campus.

Two of the events I will be working all summer long include Summer Institute and Campus Information Sessions. Summer Institute is offered every Tuesday beginning July 13th- August 14th. The Summer Institute program at Fisher is a free one-day seminar designed to assist motivated students in the college selection process. Each Summer Institute program covers the following topics:

• Charting a challenging high school experience
• The college selection process
• What colleges look for in an applicant
• Financial aid and scholarship search
• Interviewing techniques
• Tips on the college essay or personal statement

I will also be working the different summer Information Sessions! Information Sessions are typically designed for high school students of senior and junior year status. Each Information Session includes a campus tour and an overview of our College offerings, including Admissions and Financial Aid. Information Sessions are available this summer as follows:

• Select Mondays at 10am
• Select Wednesdays at 2pm
• Select Fridays at 10am

Reading about colleges and doing research online is always a great way to find a school of interest, but visiting a campus is really what puts things into perspective. I still remember my first campus visit to Fisher (props to Miss Kaylee Kramer who's still one of our current tour guides!) So if you have free time this summer and aren’t too busy traveling the globe then come check out our suburban campus in Pittsford, NY and see what Fisher is all about!

Until Later,
