Kentucky Private College Week 2007 scheduled for June 18-22

The 4th annual Kentucky Private College Week will be held June 18-22, 2007. Kentucky Private College Week is a coordinated effort by Kentucky’s 20 nonprofit, private colleges and universities that makes it easy and convenient for students and families to explore a variety of campuses. These sessions offer a chance for students and families to get a feel for the campuses that a viewbook or website just can’t provide. Common visit times at all 20 campuses – 9 a.m. and 2 a.m. (local time) daily – and convenient online scheduling make it easy for students to plan their trips and visit as many as 10 campuses in a single week.

It’s this convenience that Frankfort High guidance counselor Joretta Crowe appreciates about Kentucky Private College Week. “Students can hit multiple colleges in the week, and everyone’s on the same page as to what students and parents expect to see during their visits,” Crowe said.

The event is open to all students interested in learning more about Kentucky’s private colleges. Students receive an application fee waiver for every campus they visit during Private College Week, and every student that visits three or more campuses during the week is automatically entered into a prize drawing for an iPod Shuffle and other great prizes. Counselors and student groups are also encouraged to visit during the week.
