Program Outline:

We would suggest you connect by 9:45 AM, as the opening program starts at 10 AM. At 10:20 AM we split into two concurrent sessions: "First Year of College" and "Financial Aid 101". Parents will be encouraged to attend the Financial Aid Session, and student winners will be asked to stay in the Watkins Room. In the Watkins Room, we will have a moderator ask some initial questions to the panel and then take questions from current students. The session will last from 10:20 AM to 11:20 AM.

After the sessions, we ask winners to begin lining up for the ceremony which will start at 12 PM. During this time Recruiters and College students will have an opportunity to speak to interested parents about your schools at the display tables. At 12 PM, we award the student winners at this time and conclude the program by noon. We will then take a group picture of the winners and the event will remain open until 2 PM.
