AUBURN — The Auburn Public Library will hold its second annual College Night from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 16, in the Androscoggin Community Room, 49 Spring St.
Designed to provide information early in the college process to teens and their parents, this event will feature representatives from nine Maine colleges and universities. Schools represented will be Bates College, Central Maine Community College, CMMC School of Nursing and Health Professions, Kaplan University, Maine College of Art, Thomas College, University of Maine (Orono), University of New England and University of Southern Maine/USM Lewiston Auburn College.
The evening will begin at 5:30 with a panel discussion facilitated by Joan Macri 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 start them 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.
Topics for discussion will include taking appropriate courses in middle and high school, thinking ahead about career areas, costs of college (FAFSA, FAFSA Forecaster), types of colleges and degrees, and the application process, including the Common Application. If time permits, this 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.
