Deans’ Days and Counseling Sessions 2014

Offerings for Alumni Sons and Daughters

DEANS’ DAYS

The Admission Office has scheduled three specially arranged Deans’ Days to give the sons and daughters of Amherst alumni and their parents the opportunity to learn more about Amherst and its admission policies.  Deans’ Days include group conversations for Amherst families with secondary school students who will be seniors in 2014 - 15.  In addition, there will be a tour of the campus, and a light lunch will be served. 

In 2014, Deans’ Days have been scheduled for:

  • Friday, May 30, 2014
  • Friday, July 11, 2014
  • Friday, August 15, 2014

Pre-registration is required.  To register for one of the three Deans’ Days, call (413) 542-2328.  Confirmation of the reservations will be mailed two weeks prior to the three different Deans’ Days.

COUNSELING SESSIONS (Student/Dean Conversations)

Students who are rising high school seniors may also arrange for a conversation with a dean, which would entail time with a senior member of the Admission staff to discuss Amherst and its admission policies.  This also would allow the staff member to learn a bit about the student’s interests and aspirations, all with an eye toward being as helpful as possible to the student who is going through the college admission process.  For the Admission Office to provide helpful and specific advice, the student should be able to provide junior testing and grades, and a list of his or her senior academic courses.  For these reasons, the ideal time to meet with a dean would be sometime after June 1st and before Labor Day.  Student/Dean Conversations are not offered after November 1st.  To make an appointment for a student/dean conversation with an Admission Dean, call (413) 542-2328.

Please note:  A few counseling session slots are offered in the afternoon of the three Deans’ Days on a first come, first served basis.  The alum asking for a reservation for the Deans’ Day Program must also ask to have an appointment for the counseling session.  Sign-up for Deans’ Day does not automatically mean that the student will also have a counseling session.
