The purpose of the four Senior Parent Nights is:
· To provide four nights, identical in content/ information, so parents can chose one out of the four nights to work with their work/family schedules.
· To convey important information to parents of seniors about the admission process, Gonzaga College Counseling deadlines, and the “admission process.”
· To review the landscape of undergraduate admissions in midst of the pandemic.
o How will colleges review applications with a test optional policy?
o “My son’s testing administration keeps on getting cancelled - what do we do?”
o "My son, like so many others, could not pursue clubs, activities, theater, sports, internships, jobs because of the pandemic. This type of participation is important to colleges in their admissions review. How will this work this year?"
o "If demonstrated interest plays a role in the admissions process - how can my son show demonstrated interest when he is not allowed to visit colleges due to the pandemic?”
o "How will colleges know that my son worked hard during the pandemic as Gonzaga distance learning worked well? Gonzaga students were (and are) being held accountable compared to other private schools and school districts. How will this information be communicated to college admission offices?"
o Dispelling the myths of “gap year increase” taking spots for the fall 2021.
o "Should my son change his strategy because of the pandemic?"
o Sharing information that Gonzaga College Counseling has received from Admission officers at several institutions.
o How will College Virtual Visitation work for the Class of 2021?
