Altadena Library Teen Workshop Presents Making the Most of Your College Visits with Ashley Sim

Altadena Library presents Making the Most of Your College Visits with Ashley Sim on Saturday, March 4 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. offered by the Library as part of its teen programming.

Spring break is right around the corner, and that is a great time to visit colleges if you are a high school student. Please come join Ashley Sim, former admissions officer for Caltech, as she explains why visiting colleges is crucial before you start the application process and how to get the most out of your college visits. She will discuss the role college visits play in the admissions process, the types of visit opportunities offered by colleges, and how you should go about conducting them.

Ashley Sim is an educational consultant who provides individualized academic advising and college and law school admissions counseling to students and parents. A graduate of Stanford University and Harvard Law School, she has worked in college admissions for more than 15 years as an alumni admissions representative of Stanford and as the Associate Director of Undergraduate Admissions at the California Institute of Technology. In addition to advising her own clients, Ashley works as a consultant for Colledge, a college admissions consulting company, and as a producer of Access College on KPFK 90.7 FM in Los Angeles, a radio show dedicated to providing better information about college admissions and promoting greater access to higher education. She lives in Altadena with her husband and two children.

Altadena Library District is located at 600 East Mariposa St., Altadena.
