Get Ready for College (Admissions Month at the Library!)

High school students and families, you are most cordially invited to join us at the library for some awesome workshops and seminars on college admissions. Whether or not you have lined your room with UC Davis gear or you haven’t even given college a second thought, come check us out! We’ll probably have some valuable info for you. Regardless, all participants will be fed great snacks and be entered into our weekly raffle for college apparel. Last week, we raffled off a UC Berkeley sweatshirt; what will it be this week??

Here’s a snapshot from last week’s workshop, hosted by the Gates Millennium Scholars and the SLZ Library. Students learned about financial aid, scholarships, and tips on applications for college funding.


This Saturday is our workshop, ” The College Admissions Process Unveiled.” Where to even start with college admissions? Bring your questions to Gerna Benz of Bay Area College Planners and assemble your plan for college!
