This morning in Nichols Theatre, Rob Franek, editor-in-chief of The Princeton Review, spoke about college access and affordability to high school guidance counselors from across the nation.
Franek’s keynote address, “Helping Students Find Best Fit Colleges,” was part of Randolph’s 2017 Heick Symposium on College Admissions. The three-day event, themed “Exploring the Forces Affecting College Access,” provided counselors with professional development, networking opportunities, and the chance to become acquainted with both Randolph College and the City of Lynchburg. In addition to tours of the College facilities and downtown Lynchburg, guests met and heard from panels of Randolph students and professors.
Funding for the conference fees and travel costs was provided through the Betty Jo Denton Heick ’45 Annual Symposium Fund, created through a generous bequest from the estate of Betty Jo Denton Heick ’45.
