Registration is open for Patten Free Library’s Wednesday, Oct. 2 workshop on the Common Application for college admission. The event is for high school seniors and will be held at Patten Free Library from 68 p.m. in the Library’s Community Room. Several local college counselors will be on hand to help students learn the basics about the Common Application website and about how to develop a strong personal profile. The event is free and open to any high school senior; pre-registration is required. 

“This is our seventh annual ‘Pizza Pity Party’’” said Roberta Jordan, outreach and instruction librarian at Patten, in a news release. “I think everyone who attends feels as if they get much-needed assistance and encouragement on their Common Application, thanks to Leslie Trundy of Morse High School, who leads the workshop. Wendy Thompson of Westport Educational Consulting will also be presenting again this year. Of course, the free pizza also makes the reality of the college application process a little less painful.” 

Interested students must pre-register for the event and should bring their own laptop or tableta limited number of library laptops are available. Parents are welcome to attend, too. Students may register by emailing [email protected] or calling (207) 443-5141ext. 12. When registering, provide the registrant’s full name, contact information (email or phone), and whether a parent plans to attend, too.
