entrancebanners.jpgWelcome back to the Hood College Counselor Connection, and congratulations on successfully reaching the end of another school year! While you are getting ready to say farewell to your seniors as they head off to college, we are preparing to welcome them into the Hood community this fall.

On May 20, we celebrated as each member of the Hood College Class of 2017 walked across the stage toward their bright futures. The 282 graduates were addressed by Krishanti Vignarajah, First Lady Michelle Obama’s former policy director, who asked for their help in promoting gender equality as they head out into the world and offered her congratulations on completing this milestone achievement.

If you have seniors who are still uncertain about their post-graduation plans, please encourage them to contact us. We have a limited number of spaces (including housing and financial aid) for qualified applicants to join the Class of 2021. As always, our application is free of charge and can be accessed here.

What would you like to see in future editions of the Counselor Connection? Let us know in the comments or by emailing Whitney Yount at yount@hood.edu.


Visit Hood! Upcoming Events

We offer a variety of summer visit options during the week in order to make a Hood College visit a convenient and pleasant experience for students, families, counselors and groups.

This summer, Hood will be hosting five Summer Preview Days. Each Preview Day will take place on a Friday and will allow students and families to participate in an admission presentation, tour our campus, and enjoy lunch with faculty members. Many families will find it a great first stop on their way to a weekend trip to Washington, D.C, Baltimore, or just to enjoy all there is to see and do in Frederick!

In addition to offering special events on campus, we are also open for tours during the week. During each individual visit, students and their families will have the opportunity to sit down and chat with an admission counselor and take a student-guided tour of campus. Visit options are available each morning and afternoon, Monday through Thursday.

We are also beginning to prepare the programming for our Fall Open Houses! This year, the open houses will be held on October 14 and November 11. During these events, students and their families will have the opportunity to meet with faculty members, current students, and coaches, take a tour of campus, and enjoy a meal.
