Junior Reg Visits
During the fall semester, each junior registry class will meet once in the VICCI Center. Volunteers present an overview of the Center and our resources and services. Students receive a handout of information to take home. In addition, we provide this page with a packet of information to serve as a starting point for their college admissions path.
Juniors are also encouraged to read the College Admissions Guide and Paying for College sections of the VICCI Center Website and to attend the presentations by college admissions representatives in the VICCI Center. See the VICCI Center Calendar for the schedule.
Here are links to useful reference materials for Juniors.
