To Schedule a College Admissions Visit
First, please review the VICCI Center (college visits) online calendar at Lowell College Visits Calendar to see which days/times are available.
Visit times are 10:00, 11:00, 12:00, 1:00 and 2:00. Each visit is 45 minutes in duration.
Send your request via email to Tina Shih, our parent volunteer, at firstname.lastname@example.org. She will then add the visit to our calendar. Thank you.
Please note that Lowell uses a modular schedule in which some classes are longer than others. As a result, students do not have a single lunch period. Moreover, the college visit times do not correspond to class periods. You should be prepared to have some students come and go during your presentation. We hope this does not inconvenience you too much.
About parking and safety
There is street parking near Lowell, but much of it is limited to two hours. Check the signs. Pay attention to the street cleaning signs, as well.
While San Francisco is not an especially dangerous city, and the area around Lowell is generally safe, we advise you to lock your car and not to leave valuables in sight in it. You should also pay attention to your surroundings while using digital devices, since they are prime targets of theft in some areas of the city.
Finding Room 116, the VICCI Center
As you enter the main plaza with the flag pole on Eucalyptus Drive, head for the bank of doors on your left, go past the bookstore, and turn left just past the staircase. You will be in a short hall. Go straight. At the end of the hall, turn left again into a small, rather dark, ante area. Room 116 is on the right.
Audio/Visual in Room 116
There is a large HDTV, DVD player and a VGA laptop hookup, should you wish to use these. Please arrive a little early to hook up a laptop. You should bring whatever adaptor your computer needs to connect to our TV's VGA input. You should also know how to activate your computer's display mirroring function.
Posters, catalogs, pencils, pens, mouse pads, notepads, pennants
We will gladly accept posters and pennants to display in our center. Course catalogs will be added to our library. All other items will be made available to the over 650 seniors and 650 juniors at our school. Thank you.
