The ESD College Guidance Deans’ Panel Program for ESD parents and community members is TONIGHT at 6:00 p.m. in the Bray Performance Hall. This is a rare opportunity for Upper School students and parents to hear from the Deans of Admission at three highly respected institutions. The Deans will be speaking about trends in college admission and the application process in general. They will also answer questions students and parents might have about applying to college. Attendees will hear from:
- Stephen Farmer, Vice President for Enrollment & Undergraduate Admissions at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
- Stephanie Dupaul, Vice President for Enrollment Management at University of Richmond
- Rod Jackson, Senior Associate Director of Admission & Director of Diversity Recruitment at Southern Methodist University
The Deans Panel in its current form was started in 2013. The object was to bring in a variety of college speakers each year, so that students and parents can view the college admission process through their lens, and also make sure that they understand the scope and value of an ESD education by touring our facility, having discussions with faculty, and meeting our talented students. By demystifying the process in the panel discussion, we hope parents and students will be better able to get the most out of their college process.
We hope you join us, Eagle Families!
