There are several upcoming opportunities to interact with college admission professionals in the Seattle area. If you are a high school sophomore or junior, this is a great way to informally learn more about a college, as well as meet the admissions representative that will most likely be the first one to review your application. Never underestimate the value of expressing demonstrated interest in a college as your effort will not go unnoticed when it is decision time. And remember too, that they want to see your genuine interest in attending their university – they don't want to know that it is your parent's dream school for you.

Be sure to follow the links to learn about registration requirements and sign up to be on their mailing lists to ensure future invitations.
