Understanding the College Admissions Process

collegestudents_campus.gifThe college admissions process can be overwhelming, but there are people who can help. Please join us for a presentation by Lanita Foley, college admissions expert and founder of Where Success Blooms. Lanita will explore the current college admissions landscape, and discuss what parents need to know to make sure their student is accepted to their best fit school in the most stress-free manner possible. Students and parents can learn how to maximize their college admissions options, and a question and answer session will follow the presentation.

Registration is required. To sign up, please visit or call the Information or Reference Desk at 781-769-0200 x110 or 222. This program is generously being funded by the Friends of the Library.
