NEW DATE: Tuesday, May 26, 2020
Sessions run from 8 to 8:20pm, 8:30 to 8:50pm, 9 to 9:20pm, and 9:30 to 9:50 pm via Zoom
Deadline for SHS Juniors to Register: Tuesday, May 19, 2020Calling all college freshmen and sophomores who graduated from SHS: If you are willing to share your insights with your younger SHS peers, please provide your contact information and availability in this very brief Survey Form for College Students no later than May 1, 2020. Given the fact that juniors are unable to visit colleges in person at this time, your participation is more vital than ever and greatly appreciated.
The SHS PTA is presenting a fabulous opportunity for junior students to speak directly with recent SHS graduates who are currently in college about their campus experiences. This is a “no parents allowed” evening for juniors to have an open and honest discussion with SHS alumni who are currently college freshmen and sophomores about college life, including everything from academics to social life to laundry.Examples of questions to pose include:
- How did you ultimately choose which college to attend?
- How was the transition from SHS to college?
- How easy is it to access professors?
- Who is teaching the classes?
- Did you join a fraternity/sorority?
- What is it like to live away from home?
More than 75 SHS graduates representing over 45 colleges and universities will be leading Zoom meetings to speak with groups of current SHS juniors. SHS juniors will have the opportunity to choose in advance from the schools represented and attend up to four 20-minute Zoom sessions. After the close of registration, juniors will be emailed their assigned schedule and Zoom links to meet with students at the colleges of their choice.
Advance registration is required. Follow this link to the STS College Night Registration Form to view the list of schools represented and select any four!
