Admissions Workshop Weekend

November 15th & 16th, 2014

The biggest and most important event Dream Project holds. The Dream Project invites college admissions counselors, writing tutors, and its own mentors to campus for one intensive weekend of college application work. Students can come at any point in the college application process and receive assistance. Some students have arrived with nothing and left with a completed college application. All of the students in the Dream Project and its partner programs are expected to come. Program includes a parent information session in the morning and information sessions throughout the day about various topics.
