Georgetown conducts Student-Parent Information Sessions abroad in Asia, Europe, and Latin America. The presentations are conducted along with other leading American universities and include slide images depicting each university’s distinct character and programs. Prospective students and their parents thus learn about colleges with similar philosophies of education, diverse campus communities, and the variety of admissions & financial aid policies. The programs last about 1 and 1/2 hour and are open to candidates seeking to enter college as First-Year or Transfer students.
Georgetown University, Duke University, Northwestern University, Princeton University, and Vanderbilt University will conduct joint information Sessions in Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, Seoul, and Tokyo this August and September.
