College Preparedness Panel

Stressing about college? Don't! The Library invites all high school students to a College Preparedness Panel at the Library on Friday, March 31st at 5:00pm. Whether you are a senior heading off to college in the fall or a freshman just beginning the process, this panel is for you. Panelists will discuss what college is really like and why you don't need to panic about it. Professor Andrea Lanoux of Connecticut College will talk about getting the most out of your courses, Admissions Director Kebra Sedam of Yale University will discuss what admissions officers think about applications, and college freshmen Molly McElroy and Brie Nicolaou will tell you what it is really like on the other side of high school. This event is free and open to the public. No registration is necessary. For questions, please call the library at (860) 445-0392. For more information, check out our flyer here.
