Tabor Academy will once again this fall be hosting two college fairs for juniors and seniors. Over 100 college representatives from schools in the U.S. and abroad will be on campus to discuss their programs and answer questions. The list includes small liberal arts colleges and large research universities; schools in major metropolitan cities and more remote areas; and colleges offering Division I and Division III athletics. Dialogue with college reps is meant to be fun and informative, not evaluative.
The college fair is an important opportunity for our students. For juniors, it is a chance to begin the conversation about college and fit, to explore the range of schools in the U.S. and abroad, and to begin to understand what they want and need from their college experience. For seniors, they are finalizing their college list; questions and conversations with college reps are more pointed and detailed. In most cases, the admissions representative our students meet is the individual who will read their application. College representatives can put a face to a name, and students can fine-tune their lists, explore their interests, and practice the all-important skill of talking about who they are and what their goals may be.
College fairs will be held Monday, September 16, and Monday, October 6, from 2:45 PM to 4:00 PM in the Fish Center for Health & Athletics. We are pleased to be able to offer this opportunity to our students conveniently here at home.
With the persistence of environmental change, people across the world are experimenting daily with different adaptive methods on the ground. With support from National Geographic and The Redford Center, filmmaker Alizé Carrère has been documenting innovative human adaptations in places such as Madagascar, Bangladesh, Vanuatu, Norway and the United States. From floating farms in Bangladesh to ice pyramids in the Himalayas, these stories reveal incredible ingenuity and resourcefulness in the face of environmental adversity. Alizé shares her experiences from the field looking at these unique examples of human adaptation, reminding us of the most important trait that has allowed for our continued survival on earth.
Join us for this free lecture in the Stroud Academic Center's Lyndon South Auditorium at 242 Front Street, Marion.
