Local Counselors’ Association Invites High School Students to Attend “College Night” at Lycoming College

The Lycoming County Counselors Association (LCCA) and Lycoming College invite local high school students to attend “College Night” on Thursday, Sept. 22 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. in the Keiper Recreation Center on the College’s campus. The annual event offers students and families the chance to speak with representatives from 61 colleges and universities to explore possibilities and find the right college for them. The event is free and open to the public.

“I am a firm believer that in-person contact helps build stronger relationships. We had to get away from that during the pandemic, and I’m excited to see that we can have a robust event that brings that in-person contact back,” said Emily Wagner, LCCA treasurer. “Families should attend as a way to become more informed about the college admissions process and find out what they desire in an institution.”

Representatives from schools in Pennsylvania and surrounding states, as well as branches of the military, will be available to discuss their programs, scholarship offerings, and internship and research opportunities. The registration funds received from exhibiting institutions are used to fund scholarships for every school district in Lycoming County.

“We have tremendous students in our area, so we are very pleased to be able to serve as the host site for the LCCA College Night. It is a joy for our colleagues to welcome these students and families we’ve been supporting in the college search process. The event will be a very valuable opportunity for all involved!” said Jessica A. Quintana Hess, director of admissions at Lycoming.
