College Application and Exploration Week
Weekly Tip Sheet – October 1
Tips and Tricks
Don’t overwhelm yourself. Many new site coordinators are excited about hosting their event – and that enthusiasm is needed! However, don’t plan so much in the week that it becomes overwhelming. For new site coordinators, we recommend keeping the first College Application and Exploration Week celebration simple and expanding on that celebration in every subsequent year. (And, of course, if you need help or have questions, let us know!)
Create a Buzz
Be sure to share out what you’re doing in your schools, from the early preparation stages to activities during the week, on social media! If your pages are public, remember to mention us so we can share what’s going on in your schools.
