This week, November 12th-16th, is College Application Week!
During Minnesota College Application Week, the goal is for every graduating senior to have the chance to complete a college application, with a focus on encouraging and assisting low-income, minority, and would-be first generation college students with the application process. Many Minnesota colleges and universities will be waiving application fees for this week to further encourage student participation.
At Northfield High School, the TORCH Office is excited to host events supporting College Application Week. On Tuesday and Thursday this week, TORCH staff along with volunteers from Carleton College, South Central Community College, Minnesota State University Mankato, and Inver Hills Community College will be available throughout the day to assist students with college applications or researching opportunities for further education. Other events include Wear Your College Gear Day, College Essay Day, and Financial Aid Day. During these events, students will receive information, encouragement, and strategies for moving forward in their college application process.
A big thank you to Hogan Brothers, Culver’s, George’s Vineyard, and the Quarterback Club for supporting Northfield High School students’ continuing education through their donation of coupons for students participating in College Application Week!
