Asian American Donor Program is proud to announce that we’ll be hosting a College Admissions panel and presentation for rising seniors and incoming freshman!
After speaking with students in our community, we have found that many are lacking resources, especially since COVID-19 have brought their classes online. Counselors have been inaccessible as of late, and have little to no hours to talk to students about their next steps, and what they should prepare for going into college, so we decided we wanted to meet our communities’ needs!
College Admission Panel:
Date: July 31, 2020
Time: 2pm PST
Panel speakers: Sabrina Williams (UCLA – Asst. Director, Regional Recruitment), Cynthia Robey (UC Berkeley Freshman Admissions Reader and College Counselor), Anne Johnson (UC Santa Barbara – Freshman Admissions Counselor), Ria Jagasia (UC Santa Cruz – Senior Admissions Evaluator), Melanie David (UC Davis – Assistant Director, Bay Area region), and more to be announced!
