J-Teen’s First College Night

Jewish high school students will be more informed in their college decisions after J-Teen’s first college night.

The event, which was held on Wednesday, November 17 at the Boulder JCC, brought in representatives from CU, DU, as well as a former admission counselor from Naropa University. The event also brought in a college financial planner, which was an asset to students in this economic time.

The program was intimate and provided a space for students to ask questions, such as what to write about in a college essay and what to do if a student messed up their grades. In addition, the college representatives discussed grade requirements for the schools and the advantages of a liberal arts education.

CU Hillel director Hanan Nayberg and CU Hillel president Courtney Miller were also on hand to discuss Jewish life on campus and how to “be Jewish” in college.
