Students sign up for visits via their Naviance Family Accounts (Grades 9-12) and parents can see information about visits on our online calendar. We offer a Speaker Series*, it involves presenting on a general topic before your admissions presentation. Past topics have ranged from highlighted majors and careers to tips on preparing for interviews. If you are interested in participating in our Speaker Series, please include a topic title.
(* The SSIS Speaker Series was created to share information between universities and SSIS students and families. If you would like to participate in the SSIS Speaker Series, it consists of a 10-15 minute presentation on a general topic before your admissions presentation during your 1 hour visit to campus. Past presentations have included: "An Introduction to Social Entrepreneurship", "How to use School Visits to Tailor Your Final School List and Choose Your Fit School", "Internship/Career Placement", "Strengths Based Leadership", "Tips for Preparing Your Portfolio/Audition". This is a great way to highlight something special your institution is doing, plus it can draw an audience that is interested in the speaker series topic and in addition they learn about your university.)
