Where is your college admission counselor? Most likely, s/he is not on the college campus. At the University of Denver, my colleagues and I will visit hundreds of high schools & college fairs, meet thousands of excited students and shake plenty of hands along the way. We will lose our voice, drink gallons of water, use plenty of hand sanitizer, respond to questions about an assortment of academic opportunities almost as fast as Simone Manuel can swim, and pop breath mints all along the way. We will drive a NASCAR-worthy amount of miles, ingest more caffeine than our doctors would recommend, and we will have a smile on our face most of the time. At home, we will leave behind family members, friends, pets, and many other responsibilities.
Why would we do this?
Because we love working with students. Because we like to travel. Because we believe in education. Because we love DU!
We’re not the only ones working hard through these weeks.
In the next 60 days, student will take numerous exams, attend homecoming events, and maybe even apply to the school of their dreams. While balancing sports, clubs, jobs, community service, family responsibilities, and school work, be on the lookout for DU! We might be coming to your high school or a college fair in a town near you.
We are ready to meet you and we are wired with caffeine!
