College Night at the Library, an opportunity for students to visit with admissions representatives from local colleges and universities, will occur from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 20, at the East Bank Regional Library, 4747 W. Napoleon, Metairie. This event is free of charge and is open to the public. There is no registration. This event is geared for public, private, parochial and homeschooled high school students and their parents. College Day begins at 6:30 p.m. with a panel discussion that will focus on admission requirements, availability of campus tours, online applications vs. paper applications, application deadlines, popular majors, internship opportunities, types of campus housing, financial aid and scholarship opportunities, and more. The panel discussion will be followed by a question-and-answer session. Following the Q-and-A Session, admissions representatives will be available at tables for further discussion with prospective students. They represent the following institutions. � University of New Orleans� Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge� University of Louisiana-Monroe, Monroe, Louisiana� Loyola University, New Orleans� Northwestern State University, Natchitoches, Louisiana� Nicholls State University, Thibodaux, Louisiana� Southeastern Louisiana State University, Hammond� Xavier University, New Orleans� Delgado Community College, New Orleans There are two out-of-state colleges or universities. � Denison University, Granville, Ohio� Birmingham Southern, Birmingham, Alabama College Day at the Library is coordinated by Carol Langston, PhD. She is the owner of Langston Educational Consulting. Langston has served as a College Board essay consultant, an AP Spanish reader, and has authored a chapter in a college counseling textbook that is used to certify counselors as college counselors. �I think students have to know that even if they are not interested in the colleges on the panel, they should attend,� she said. �The panel is going to continue to change. The colleges represent types of colleges: large, medium, small, city, suburban, rural, and they vary in selectivity, and offer different scholarships and programs of study. They can then decide which type of college is a good fit.� For more information regarding this presentation, contact Chris Smith, Manager of Adult Programming for the library, at
