发布时间:2018-09-15 | 浏览次数:
On the evening of September 13, the admission officers from the top five liberal arts colleges in the United States visited Kaiwen Academy, to introduce their colleges and the latest admissions policies to more than 300 students from Kaiwen and other schools and their parents. They are Mr. Brian. Atkins, Director of Admissions of Dickinson College, Mrs. Amy E. Markham, Admission Officer of Mount Holyoke College, Mrs. Marilyn Hesser, Deputy Director of Admissions of University of Richmond, Mrs. Lee Ann Backlund, Admission Officer of Sewanee: University of the South, and Mrs. Mary Karen Vellines, Admission Officer of Union College.

The admission officers introduced superior resources, specialty, and others of each college. In the subsequent Q&A session, they gave detailed explanations on issues of general concern. After the briefing session, each college reserved one-on-one consultation time. The admission officers answered the questions regarding campus life, club events, applications for grants, scholarships, and necessary application conditions.

Q1: What kind of special education content is offered by the Liberal Arts College?
Mr. Brian. Atkins said: "Liberal Arts College is one of the important categories of American colleges and universities. The liberal arts college generally refers to those small and sophisticated colleges offering liberal arts education, mainly undergraduate education. In addition to basic subjects, the liberal arts college includes art, humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences, and focuses on giving students more opportunities to participate and one-on-one exchanges. The students and professors and schools form a closer and longer-lasting contact, which is not only conducive to the current internship and research but also conducive to future career development."


Q2: What is the proportion of students who may successfully enter into postgraduate programs study after graduating from the Liberal Arts College?

Mrs. Lee Ann Backlund said: “The proportion of students who may study postgraduate programs in our total five schools is about 20%, and there are differences among each school. Whether to choose a postgraduate program largely depends on the student’s professional direction and Career Planning "


The Features of Each College

 

Tip1 Dickinson College
As one of the top liberal arts colleges offering business studies, Dickinson College is known for its innovative programs.

Dickinson has 17 overseas study programs, and 60% of the students have the opportunity to study abroad.
 


Tip2 Mount Holyoke College

As the first women's college in the United States, it is committed to fostering independent and charismatic women and helping them succeed in their careers. Mount Holyoke is also a member of the Five College Consortium. Therefore, students can take courses in the other four colleges and enjoy the rich resources of the other four colleges. Other members of the Five College Consortium include Amherst College, Smith College, Hampshire College, and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst (UMass).
 


Tip3 University of Richmond

It is not only a liberal arts college with a reputation for humanities and arts, but it also has a business school and a law school with a postgraduate program. Jason College's leadership research provides the only leading research degree program in the United States. Richmond is very free in terms of curriculum selection, and undergraduates can cross-curriculum in five colleges. At the same time, the college spares no effort to support student internships and research projects. Each student has the opportunity to receive a school-sponsored amount up to $4,000 to continue an internship or research project each summer.
