College Nights 2012

College Nights 2012, a two-evening informational program designed especially for high school students and their families, will be held for the ninth consecutive year Oct. 2-3 at Spring Woods High School, 2045 Gessner. The College Nights programs are designed as one-stop “shopping” events and will be held from 6-8 p.m. on both evenings.

In recent years, as many as 3,000 people have attended these popular sessions. Students are encouraged to attend on the night their high school is scheduled, but may check the list of participating universities for each evening to insure that they do attend the program that includes the colleges or universities they are most interested in. High school nights and schedules are: Tuesday, Oct. 2, 6-8 p.m. This session is recommended for Stratford and Spring Woods high schools and Westchester Academy for International Studies families. Wednesday, Oct.3, 6-8 p.m.

This session has been recommended for Memorial and Northbrook high schools families, as well as students who are enrolled at the Spring Branch Academy of Choice. Typical sessions attract as many as 200 representatives from regional, state and national colleges and universities, both public and private, as well as many technical and military-related institutions. Representatives share information with students and family members about college cost, size, undergraduate majors and the particular application process, plus other items of interest.

For more information on College Nights 2012, please visit the Spring Branch ISD Post-Secondary Planning website or please call 713-251-1992. Campus counselors may also provide additional details and information.
