Terrific Ten: College Exploration Series

Ten of the top public research universities around the country have partnered to help you and your family navigate a national college search process in a virtual world. This is an opportunity to engage with admission experts to learn how to effectively search for and compare colleges, pay for your education, and find the academic and student experience that is right for you.

We are excited to invite you to our Terrific Ten College Exploration Series. Sessions are hosted by:

Arizona State University
