Alma College

Alma College Counselor Connection - Winter 2014
Happy holidays from Alma College! We hope you are enjoying winter's early arrival. I am excited to share some of our latest updates in this edition of the Counselor Connection.

Summer Camp Opportunities

Photo: e-STEMIn addition to our existing summer camp opportunities, we are excited to announce new summer experiences that can be explored here. Opportunities include exploration in the STEM fields, Model United Nations, performing arts, and athletics.

Scholarship Opportunities

You may already know that accepted students receive merit scholarships ranging from $12,000-$20,000 per year, but we offer so much more! For example, Scholars Summit is an opportunity for our top scholars to interview to increase their merit award by an additional $1,000-$4,000! Any students involved in the performing arts may audition for scholarships before March 1 (they do not have to be a music major or minor to earn a performance scholarship). You can also find our interest based scholarships here, including fine arts, Pre-Law, Religious Leadership, Business, and more.

We Can Help with Group Travel Costs!Photo: Campus Visit

If you would like to bring a group of students to visit campus, we are happy to assist you! If you would like more information, feel free to contact me by responding to this e-mail. If you know of a student who is interested in scheduling an individual campus visit, they may do so at www.alma.edu/visit. We hope to see you and your students on campus soon!

Holiday Campus Closure

Please note that the Admissions Office will be closed December 24th-29th and December 31st (afternoon only). However, if you need to reach us during these times, please feel free to call 1-800-321-ALMA with a detailed message and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Once again, I'd like to wish you a joyful holiday season! Please feel free to contact me if you would like to refer a student or if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Amanda Slenski
Director of Admissions
