Woodside’s College and Career Center is offering a variety of services this spring aimed at assisting juniors in their journey to college. Starting in February, Woodside will be taking juniors on several trips to colleges around California. 

“There’s going to be a big [trip] where we fly to Southern California, and that’s going to happen at the end of March or in [the beginning of] April,” college counselor Zorina Matavulj said.

There are tentative plans for a third trip, also to Southern California. There was also a trip to UC Davis on February 3. All trips will be free to students. Another service available to juniors this spring will be March Into College: free weekly workshops on college admissions, happening each Wednesday at 7:00 pm throughout March. 

“March Into College divides [college admissions] into different categories, and each night, we focus on a different thing,” Matavulj said. “There is a lot of information and a lot of support that needs to happen with four-year colleges.”

Workshop topics will include building a college list, college essays, and financial aid. For more information, check out the Weekly Notes for the week of January 30.
