Concho Valley College Night Scheduled Nov. 15 at Angelo State
Angelo State University will host Concho Valley College Night at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 15, to give students from the area an opportunity to visit with representatives from some 100 colleges and universities throughout Texas.
Representatives from the various institutions of higher education as well as from different branches of the U.S. military will be available to provide information and to answer specific questions from high school students and their parents. The college visitation will take place from 7-8:30 p.m. in the Davidson Conference Center in the Houston Harte University Center at 1910 Rosemont Dr. on the ASU campus.
A special financial aid/college planning workshop will be offered from 7:30-8 p.m. in Room 110-111 of the University Center. The financial aid/college planning workshop will feature Jim Glossbrenner, coordinator of marketing for West-Central Texas for the Panhandle Plains Student Loan Center, and Lyn B. Wheeler, director of student financial services at ASU. They will discuss financial aid options available to students and various factors that should be considered in planning a college career.
The purpose of the evening is to give Concho Valley high school sophomores, juniors and seniors an opportunity to visit with representatives from the various schools regarding college admission, academic programs, costs, housing, scholarships and other topics. College Night is designed to allow students and their parents to contact a maximum of Texas institutions of higher learning at a minimum of time and effort. The session also provides a way for students to narrow their collegiate options or to explore other educational possibilities.
This will mark the 11th year that ASU has hosted the event for the Concho Valley. Students seeking additional information or interested in attending the Concho Valley College Night may contact the ASU Office of Admissions at 942-2041, Ext. 230, or their high school counselors for more information.
