The participation rate was high for each information session– around twenty students showed up for each session. Students had the opportunity to learn about each university, its admission process, programs, school culture, and so on. Each information session ended with a Q&A session, where many students had time to ask questions to the representatives. The questions included topics such as admissions, dormitory life, finances and scholarships, university programs, and student body.
Students who attended the information sessions were able to gain valuable information. All students are encouraged to attend college information sessions, as they provide great opportunities to learn more about each university directly from admissions representatives.
