Roger Williams University (RI) has Fall 2018 vacancies

The May 1 deposit deadline is now behind us and it has been quite a season!  We have truly appreciated our partnerships with you all, and we are thrilled to be welcoming nearly 1,100 students who have chosen RWU.  That being said, we wanted to let you know we are continuing to work with students throughout the summer to apply.

Some additional space remains in our first-year class, as well as scholarship and financial aid funding.  We have added a June 1 priority application deadline for any students whose plans have changed, or are still exploring options for fall enrollment. This June 1 deadline will allow us to turn around admission decisions quickly and will allow students to join us for one of our June orientation programs.

Please know that Roger Williams University is an option for late applicants.  We are waiving the application fee, and we continue to be test-optional, as usual, and will accept self-reported test scores.  

Feel free to reach out to us with any questions.

The team now boasts the most titles of any U.S. collegiate ski team.

 

Our DU gymnasts were named to the 2018 Academic All-Big 12 Team, and our men’s ice hockey team has appeared in 11 consecutive NCAA tournaments, the longest active streak in the NCAA.

Avery Crisp
DU Leadership Program Helps Alumna Fly
Capt. Avery (Denney) Crisp ’12 always dreamed of flying planes, and DU put her on a path to making that dream a reality. Avery is one of only a few female pilots in the military. As a first-year student, she joined the Pioneer Leadership Program (PLP) and declared a major in international business with a minor in finance. Then, as a sophomore, she attended a DU government career fair, where she talked to the Marines about planes, of course, but also her PLP involvement. The rest is history. She received her pilot’s wings in October 2016, and she credits DU and PLP with giving her the opportunities and the foundation to succeed.

Students Impress Lawmakers with Solar Decathlon Designs
Eleven student teams from around the world competed in the U.S. Department of Energy’s Solar Decathlon competition, and lawmakers were impressed with the DU/UC Berkeley collaborative team’s entry, which won third place overall. The team designed a home with components to make and store electricity, recycle bath and shower water, and take advantage of moveable walls that allow for expanded living space.  Colorado’s governor, a state senator, and Denver’s mayor toured the home. “They are learning to apply the knowledge they have gained in the classroom to something that is very practical, and they can take it with them for the rest of their lives,” said Colorado Senator Michael Bennet.

Sewanee: U of the South…News from the Mountain


Choosing Sewanee: A dash, a march, or something in between 

Greetings from Sewanee!

For many high school seniors, the month of April is either a mad dash (enrolling at the college they know to be right for them) or a slow, steady march (working toward a decision one step at a time).

Most of the students in the University of the South’s Class of 2022 will be marchers, but they may not be as slow to decide as in years past. The secret is out, and students are starting to catch on to Sewanee’s ability to put its graduates in positions to succeed. Those students not only enjoy a top-flight liberal education while on the Domain, but also lasting connections with faculty, staff, and peers far into their lives beyond the gates.

And this year we’re hoping to put a little extra pep in their step, as we’ve introduced some exciting new announcements to this admission cycle.

We recently announced a new component of the Sewanee experience: The Sewanee Pledge. The Pledge is a promise to each and every one of our incoming students that they will receive funding for a summer internship or research assistantship, a semester-long study abroad experience at no additional tuition cost, and that they will graduate in four years. 

This Pledge combines so much of what Sewanee has to offer and has offered generations of graduates. Most of all, it ensures that each student can take full advantage of the Sewanee experience.

If you have students who would gladly dash into Sewanee’s Class of 2022 but have been placed on the waitlist, please encourage them to fill out their waitlist form through their Applicant Status Page, to communicate with their admission counselor, and, of course, to send in an enrollment deposit to a school where they have been offered admission. Students may begin to be pulled off that waitlist as early as mid-April.

After all the dashing and marching is through, I will be able to rest knowing that members of Sewanee’s Class of 2022 made the right choice, and I hope you’ll be able to as well.

Sincerely yours,

Lee Ann Backlund
Dean of Admission and Financial Aid
Vice President for Enrollment Planning


Video feature: Meet Your Sewanee Tour Guide and schedule a visit!

With a 13,000-acre campus, there’s a lot to see. That’s why we always encourage families to take a summer day to bike, hike, climb, or just relax while they are visiting us on the Mountain. Stop by our office for some recommendations if you’ve got a spare hour!


Enrollment forms for future Sewanee students are now available

Please encourage your students who have decided to attend Sewanee to start working on the enrollment forms now available on their Applicant Status Pages. The first form deadline is May 12. Don’t hesitate to reach out to a member of our office if any of your students are experiencing difficulty working through these forms.


Make sure your future Sewanee students know about these pre-orientation programs 

Finding Your Place (FYP)
FYP brings together some of Sewanee’s most renowned faculty members to provide students the opportunity to explore their place at Sewanee by closely engaging with its biology and geology, its community and history, through field trips, service, readings, writing, and small-group discussions. With the guidance of professors and students leaders, first years in FYP will find their own place in Sewanee.

Pre-orientation (PRE)
PRE offers outdoor recreational opportunities for first-year students in order to form deep relationships with one another and with Sewanee Outing Program leaders. Activities include hiking, swimming, rock climbing, canoeing, caving, and much more.


Gap years are important to us 

While many families consider the ability for their student to participate in a gap year a separate consideration entirely from that of their college search, Sewanee doesn’t quite see it that way. The qualities of a Sewanee student fall neatly in line with the idea of a year of directed discovery. Our students are self-motivated and driven to explore. They are unafraid to follow their passions even if they may lead them down a path less travelled. We believe gap years are important to the growth of some students. Please read more on deferring enrollment and letting your students know of the opportunities of taking a gap year.


Upcoming events for prospective students


April 28, 2018

Flowers blooming. Birds chirping. We’ve dreamed up the perfect spring visit itinerary for your students; it’s called Spring Preview. It’s the best of the weekday visit options (campus tour, residential halls tour, student panel) combined with two faculty engagement sessions. Students follow their academic interests to the appropriate sessions (English, history, psychology, environmental studies, 20+ more) and faculty members will meet them there.

142_17_adm applic status web buttons_300x70px_6.jpg
June 22, 2018 & July 13, 2018

Your students can take their first class in college admission with us. The Admission 101 syllabus goes something like this: finding the right colleges; applying like an expert; making the right decision. Our sessions and workshops will show your students how to get the most out of their campus visits, how to write a compelling essay and give a killer interview, and how to see their applications through the eyes of an admission counselor. While what we have to offer will be helpful to your students even if they don’t plan on applying to Sewanee, we’re pretty sure they’ll want to after spending the day on our spectacular 13,000-acre mountaintop campus.


Visiting Sewanee yourself 

Twice a year we host domestic high school counselors for our bi-annual A View from the Top counselor tour. These visits are a great way for you to connect with our office, tour campus, meet the vice-chancellor and so much more. Read more and add yourself to our interest list here. Of course these programs are limited so we highly encourage you to schedule a personalized visit.

When you hear the word “research”, you typically think of someone in a white lab coat, peering into a microscope. While we have plenty of STEM majors pursuing research across the natural sciences, research can take many different forms: original choreography, a musical composition, even a graphic novel. All a research project takes to get started is a question. How will students find the answers at Fordham?

Ars Nova: Shifting Perspectives Through Research

This year’s Ars Nova showcase, highlighting undergraduate research at Fordham College at Lincoln Center, featured work from a variety of disciplines. Many students examined familiar themes, yet pivoted the perspective to present the subjects in a new light. Bonus feature: Learn how two Theatre majors used a summer research grant to create their own webseries.
From Gene Therapy to Food Insecurity: Undergraduate Research Displayed at Rose Hill

When Fordham College at Rose Hill founded its Undergraduate Research Symposium, 36 students presented. Today, the event celebrates the research of more than 300 students in the humanities, social sciences, natural science, and the arts. Bonus feature: Why are bowling alleys disappearing? One student received a summer research grant to find the answer.

It’s hard to participate in Julita Haber’s Research in Management course without breaking a sweat. Students “spin” or ride stationary bikes while Haber teaches research concepts, theories, and methodological techniques in impression management. Discover the Gabelli Undergraduate Business Research Conference.

Financial Aid Award Letters Released January

Illinois Tech‘s Office of Financial Aid began mailing financial aid packages to FAFSA filers in January. Students can still submit the FAFSA and should take advantage of our outside scholarship spreadsheet. Students can call or email their admission counselors with questions about their awards or concerns about financing their Illinois Tech education. We are proud of the high ROI for our graduates (#1 in Illinois for 20-year earnings and #56 in the country after aid, according to PayScale), and our counselors have significant experience making an Illinois Techeducation affordable for students and families.


Improving the Financial Situation of Rising Students

Rising juniors can take steps now to improve their financial situation when applying to Illinois Tech. They should opt into honors and AP STEM classes (especially pre-calculus and physics), retake the ACT or SAT, maintain A’s and B’s, and ask a STEM teacher to write their recommendation to improve opportunities for merit scholarship consideration. They can also start researching private scholarships on our spreadsheet.

In early February we welcomed hundreds of students to campus to interview for our top undergraduate scholarships duringScholarship Symposium. Congratulations to our newest Camras, Duchossois, and Crown Scholars! Finalists have been selected, and each student should submit their deposit by May 1 to accept their scholarship.
