ALUMS! ALUMS!



We are currently awaiting decisions...from all our students...but while we await, our alums are dropping by, filling us up with their well-earned achievements....the summa cum laudes, the 3.9's, the Iron Rings from Engineering and as Ms. Louise Bennett would say, " glad bag buss"...I even heard one certain Mr. Sinclair at Princeton is heading to South Africa on an internship.  They are doing well.  Keep the Versan flag flying high.  We have two young men, Ashley who completed his PhD at Harvard in Political Science and another in Physics, my Caleb Levy....Jamaica's shoulders rests on these young people who are our future.


Because I have had a hand in it....I FEEL VINDICATED when they thrive....

I have told my students to "think global but act local."  So ultimately, they will not be classified as deserters or part of the brain drain.  


They fly our flag in their dorms and are true ambassadors.  I warn them to represent us well.

FAREWELL MEETING

I believe we may have this meeting earlier than we thought.  Watch this space next week for the details.


CONGRATS 

To all high schools that participated in the Champs competition, you all did well.


 

Registration is open for the Spring NACAC Virtual College Fairs. You and your students are invited to attend our Virtual College Fair on Sunday, March 24th from 1:00pm - 6:00pm ET. The virtual fair is a great opportunity to connect with hundreds of colleges and universities - all from the comfort of your own home.


Our fairs feature College MatchMaking®. At the time of registration, students will select the attributes that are most important to them in a college. They will receive an email that best matches them to specific colleges and universities based on the criteria they provided. We will also be hosting a virtual fair on Sunday, April 21 from 1:00pm - 6:00pm ET


These virtual fairs are complimentary to attend.


 

Dear Colleague,

            

Thank you for supporting students from your school in their applications to Columbia University. Our review of Regular Decision candidates is nearly complete, and we will soon notify students of our decisions.


The Columbia community is committed to environmental responsibility; in keeping with this commitment, we will provide some admissions decisions only online, not via regular mail. We plan to post all decisions online on Thursday, March 28, after 7:00 p.m. (Eastern Time). All applicants have received an email with instructions on how to check their decisions via our online portal, and the same information is posted on our website.


We will notify you in the coming weeks with all admissions decisions for both Early Decision and Regular Decision applicants from your school. In the meantime, if you have questions, please feel free to reach out to our office.


Thank you again for all you do to support your students through the college search process.


Best,


Jessica Marinaccio

Dean of Undergraduate Admissions and Financial Aid


 

Dear Counselors,


We are excited to announce our 2024 Precollege Actuarial Science and Statistics Program for High School Students at Bryant University. In this program, students will learn probability, statistics, financial mathematics, and statistical software such as Excel, VBA, and R. We will also have faculties, current Bryant students, industry practitioners, actuaries, come to talk to the students about what real-world work entails. Students will have the opportunity to work closely with Bryant University faculty during an immersive, five-day, in-person experience. By the end of the program, students will have a basic understanding of the actuarial profession, statistics, and will develop their data analytical skills. All students who complete the program will receive a Certificate of Completion from the Bryant University Economics Department.


The program will run from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., August 5th through August 9th.

Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from campus each day. However, all materials and lunch will be included in the cost of tuition.


Out-of-state students are also encouraged to participate in the program. They could stay in the hotel next to Bryant Campus. Students and parents are responsible for the time outside the program schedule. Contact us for more hotel information.


The entire program costs $475, and there is no application fee.

Students can apply online at: https://akaminag.wixsite.com/actuarialscience/.

Contact Dr. Gao Niu for more information or with any questions.


 

Hey Sandra,


Thinking about university is exciting, but it might seem like there are quite a few unknowns. Of course, you’ll be taking classes and studying — but what else? There are so many ways to build new connections and get involved in the Waterloo community.


Discover what your life could look like!


Talk soon.


University of Waterloo


How does Waterloo make an admission decision? When do offers go out? Can I transfer between programs when I get to Waterloo? Listen to the Hello Warrior podcast to have your burning questions answered.


 

Dear Sandra,


As we prepare to welcome the Class of 2028 to campus, we're already thinking about ways to get to know future WashU students and ways for them to get to know us!


WashU Preview is the perfect way to experience first-hand what makes our community inclusive, supportive, and distinctive. This three-day, two-night visit on campus highlights opportunities for students from underrepresented backgrounds to find the right fit at WashU (including but not limited to first-generation-to-college students, students from low-income families, students from rural areas, underrepresented students of color, and LGBTQIA+ students).


Students will meet admissions representatives, explore academics, and learn about the many support resources available across campus.


At WashU, we know our students by name and story. This year's theme, "The Power of Storytelling," will help students highlight their stories as they think about applying to college. 


We hope you'll encourage your students to learn more and complete the application by Friday, May 31.


Please let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to learning more about your students!
