College representatives visiting FCS
Our college counselors meet with every college representative who visits our campus. They take time to find out about recent developments at each institution and to make sure that their college admissions colleagues are well informed about Friends' Central. The College Counseling Office also hosts information sessions and interview sessions run by various colleges.
