Counselors' events

Due to COVID-19, the Council has held two-part virtual events in fall 2020 and again in the May 2021, with many high school counselors and access program staff participating. A playlist of each individual presentation from May is available below followed by the full-length recordings of both events, which includes Q&A at the end. Also be sure to check out more admissions-related videos on our YouTube channel.

We’ll be looking at when we can return to the in-person breakfast meetings with counselors, which we’ve held in recent years in the Twin Cities, Greater Minnesota and neighboring states.

The playlist is arranged in alphabetical order. Use the dropdown menu in the upper right corner to navigate to individual video clips for each college.
