Our Saints enjoyed a brief glimpse of their futures last Thursday when nearly 50 colleges and universities came to campus for Canterbury’s annual Fall College Night. Fifth and Sixth Form students stopped by tables set up in the Steers Center Ragland Commons to meet with representatives from across the country, learn what each had to offer, and find the right college fit.
Participating colleges included Babson College, Bucknell University, College of the Holy Cross, Fairfield University, Franklin & Marshall College, Rochester Institute of Technology, Rutgers University, Skidmore College, Tulane University, the University of Connecticut, the University of Southern California, and many more.
Sarah Ferland, Director of College Counseling, was proud of the professionalism displayed by our students and the positive reactions from the attending colleges and universities. “The Fifth and Sixth Formers took full advantage of the opportunity to speak with college representatives, ask questions, and express their interest in their schools,” she said. “They were enthusiastic and engaged, and the representatives thanked us for such a worthwhile program.”
It was indeed worthwhile for the many students in attendance. “College Night was a great experience and valuable resource to help narrow down my college choices,” said Anne Celestino ’24. “You feel a sense of belonging talking to the admission reps about what they have to offer. Overall, it really helped my search process.”
College Night is part of a robust college counseling process at Canterbury, helping students make the best choices and ultimately attend many of the country’s leading colleges and universities.
