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.
