College Workshop for Seniors and others

TWPI is sponsoring a COLLEGE NIGHT, well, actually COLLEGE DAY, the first of our college workshops, on Saturday, September 17, 2011, 1 PM. The target audience for this particular workshop is any senior in high school, whether already decided to go to college or still undecided. Others (whether in high school or middle school) may also come.

We want to help support students and make sure they meet deadlines and get the best chance for admission and scholarship help in the programs that may fit their interests most appropriately.

Come! Location is T Building at MHS, but this is not just for MHS students, but students from all over the CNMI.
