College Decisions

Thanks to a college awareness initiative, Ward Melville High School seniors have the opportunity to explore a variety of programs offered at nearly 80 postsecondary institutions without ever leaving campus.

The on-site college visitation program helps to connect the soon-to-be graduates with representatives from schools across the nation in small-group settings during the school day. The meetings focus on the schools’ application processes, areas of study and opportunities offered beyond core academics. 

“It was nice to make a personal connection with the individual who will likely be the one to read my application,” said Rachel Rosenfeld, who attended the Northeastern University on-site visit.

Later in the fall, seniors will have the chance to meet with these and other representatives as part of the high school’s on-site admissions program. During these events, participating college admissions representatives will meet with applicants to conduct personal interviews, evaluate their applications, and ultimately render a decision for acceptance.
