College Night (for Teens and Parents)

The Auburn Public Library is pleased to announce its 3rd annual College Night on Thursday, October 15, in the Androscoggin Community Room.  Designed to provide information early in the college process to teens and their parents, this event will feature representatives from eight Maine colleges and universities:  Bates College, Central Maine Community College, Husson University (just added!), Maine College for Health Professions, Kaplan University, University of Maine (Orono), University of New England, and University of Southern Maine/USM Lewiston Auburn College.  Also joining us this year will be a representative from the University of New Hampshire, as well as a college access counselor from the Finance Authority of Maine.

The evening will begin at 5:30 with a panel discussion facilitated by Maggie Davis of College for ME Androscoggin.  Whether a teen is in middle school, just starting high school or a senior applying for college, it is hoped this evening will get them – and their parents – thinking about their future and/or provide answers to some of the many questions which arise as they begin talking about and looking at colleges.  Discussion topics will address admissions, affordability and financial aid, academics, campus and student life, and careers upon graduation.

If time permits, the panel will be followed by a brief Q&A session.  The second part of the evening will feature a mini college fair, whereby each admissions representative will be available with specific information about their school and programs offered.
