Senior Night with College Counseling. On Thursday, September 6, seniors and their parents should attend The Application Process: The Trends and What to Expect. The College Counseling team will present the latest information on college trends, discuss the various ways to apply, and share what we are learning from our college colleagues. We will be joined by Greg Moyer, director of admissions recruitment, Dickinson College. This program will also be recorded and posted on our website for parents who are unable to attend.
