Welcome to Campus Encounters
Welcome to the Campus Encounters blog. I’m a professional college counselor who visits dozens of colleges a year as part of on-going professional development.
The entries on this website include factual information about the schools and my impressions of the campuses. I take extensive notes during my visits to remember the unique things about each place, remember why I might want to recommend the school to specific students, and hopefully capture a bit of the feel and culture of the campus. Blogging seems to be the most effective way to make what I learned accessible to a large audience. I hope you find these pages helpful as you navigate your college search!
Please take these blog entries with a grain of salt: as much as possible, I will share interesting facts, little-known information, or new initiatives on the campuses. Any facts and statistics I put in here come from sources provided by the college itself: promotional material they gave to me, something presented at an Information session, or something an admissions counselor or tour guide said. I have listed the date that I visited campus to give a sense of how recent the facts are, but obviously things change so please don’t take them as written in stone. If I share opinions from tour guides, I will mark them as such. Otherwise, opinions are mine and mine alone. I will share personal impressions about the college: things that surprised or impressed me, things that I really liked or wished were different, etc.
Should you want more information about these colleges or are seeking some guidance with your college search, please visit http://www.MargosianCC.com or email me at MargosianCC@gmail.com to see what I might be able to do to help you along the way.
