Pitzer Preview Day 2016
One of the things we do is to expose our top students, while they are in the 11th grade, to the option of attending a selective liberal arts college. Fortunately we have a cluster of those right in our neighborhood – the outstanding Claremont Colleges.
On Saturday, October 1st, 37 of our juniors attended a Bright Prospect event at Pitzer College called Pitzer Preview Day. The juniors who were invited to attend were all deemed private college eligible, due to their outstanding academic record. This event was a chance for current high school juniors to hear directly from Pitzer admissions officers, students, and professors, and to familiarize themselves with the private college application process. Activities for the day included a campus tour, a college class in sociology, a session on the private college application process, a college student panel, and brunch at McConnell Dining Hall.
Many Bright Prospect staff members and alumni graduated from private colleges, which generally offer several advantages, including good financial aid and the opportunity to stretch oneself socially by studying out of state and interacting with a broad range of students who come from all parts of the country and the world.
