As a result of COVID-19, colleges and universities have been forced to shut down campus visit programs just as seniors received admissions decisions and juniors began their college search. As we looked for ways to connect these students with information, the college counseling team reached out to Lakeside alumni currently attending college.
We were delighted by the response – more than 200 alumni offered their time and perspective, and we’ve scheduled meetings featuring more than 50 colleges! During the first few virtual meetings, students asked thoughtful questions and alumni shared valuable insights from their college experience. We're grateful to have alumni committed to supporting students during this unusual time.
