College Planning Workshops Begin At Edmond Library


It’s never too early to begin thinking about the process of selecting the right college for you, but you can wait too long.

That’s why Edmond Library, 10 S. Boulevard, 341-9282, is partnering with Oklahoma College Assistance Program and the University of Oklahoma Writing Center to present three college planning programs in September and October. The sessions will meet on Tuesday evenings. 

September 17, 7:00-8:30p.m.  This session is for middle-schoolers who are still pondering whether or not college is for them.  They will learn the significance of exploring their interests to determine a possible career path, and the importance of planning, preparing, and paying for success in high school and beyond.

September 24, 7:00-8:30p.m.  This session is for high-schoolers who want to learn how to kick-start the application process. 

October 1, 7:00-8:00 p.m.  This session is for high school students who want to meet with representatives from the University of Oklahoma.  The reps will provide tips and advice for college application essays, admissions paperwork, and scholarship applications.  Students interested in attending any college or university are welcome.

To register for any of the classes, phone the Edmond Library at 341-9282 or email Meaghan Hunt-Wilson.

All sessions are free.  Call the library for details, or visit the Metropolitan Library System website for more information about this or any Metropolitan Library System program.
