Bend Senior High School

College Planning Night Thursday 9/22!

All You Need to Know Before You Apply

Sep 22nd 2022 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The whats, whys and whens of the 2- and 4-year college-bound process are more complex than ever. To provide some guidance and insight, the BSH Future Center and Counselors are hosting an “all-you-need-to-know” webinar -- live via WebEx -- for seniors and their parents. This invitation is extended to all Bend La Pine high schools!

The live session will happen at 6pm on the evening of Thursday, September 22nd. The event will be taking place in Anita Moore’s (BSH Future Center) WebEX room which you can access HERE.

College Planning Night will provide a broad overview of the necessary steps for a senior who wants to attend a 2- or 4-year college. Our goal is to give you the info and requirements and timing and tools to help students get into the best-fit college for them.

More specifically, the presentation includes:

-- Timing and key benchmarks in the process (entrance exams, exploration, applications)

-- Finding colleges that are a good “fit”

-- The differences between public and private universities, 4-year and 2-year colleges

-- How 2-year community college transfers and dual-enrollment works

-- To what kind and how many colleges to apply

-- What goes into an application

-- Highschool, student and parent roles in the process

Whether you are definitely planning on applying to college or you are still exploring, this information can be just the jump start you need!

The Future Center is Open! We encourage all students – especially seniors – to reach out to Anita Moore and/or Theresa Quade as they are sorting through college options and applications. Students can make an appointment by clicking here.
