Drive-In Workshop Report from Fort Worth

This week on the TACAC Blog, we want to tell you about an event you first learned about in our post from September 8: Drive-In Workshops! Today, TACAC was at Texas Wesleyan University in Fort Worth for the Fort Worth-area Drive-In Workshop.

With over 40 counselors registered to attend, this was a popular program. Public and private school counselors came from throughout the DFW Metroplex to learn from admission and college counseling colleagues about timely topics. A cold start to the morning didn't keep people away and the counselors arrived ready to learn and interact. Attendees were treated to a catered lunch, courtesy of Texas Wesleyan University. 

The sessions for today's program were:

  • Utilizing Online Campus Visit Scheduler Systems
  • Building the Student Narrative Through Extracurricular Involvement
  • Update on the SAT and ACT
  • NCAA Overview
  • Mythbusters: Liberal Arts Colleges Edition
  • Financial Aid and PPY Update

With a wide range of experiences and perspectives represented in the room, attendees learned a great deal from the presenters and from each other. The sessions allowed for questions and conversations about the topics, which gave the attendees the opportunities to share ideas for how to do our work effectively.

Keep an eye on TACAC social media and your email account for information about other Drive-In Workshops throughout the state during the school year. These programs provide a free, convenient opportunity for counselors to develop their professional skills. CEU credit is available for this professional development opportunity. We hope to bring a Drive-In Workshop to your city soon!
