Deans and Director’s Event

You’re Invited to Deans and Director’s Event, January 22, 2018.

Holland Hall Deans and Director’s Event, sponsored by the College Counseling office, has a wonderful and rich history. Dating back to 1985, this event hosts top college admission professionals from across the United States.

Our guests spend the day on campus with Holland Hall students, and the capstone of the event is an evening program in which parents have the opportunity to ask questions of our distinguished panel of guests to learn about trends in the ever-changing landscape of selective college admission.

Join us Monday evening, January 22, 2018, when we welcome Ms. Nan Davis from Austin College, Mr. Todd Rinehart from University of Denver, Mr. Kyle Wray from Oklahoma State University and Ms. Karen Richardson from Tufts University. It will be an evening you will not want to miss!

From Kelly Walter, visiting Dean in 2016 from Boston University:

“What an honor it was to visit Holland Hall… There was both an openness and a sense of pride in your school that I sensed from every single person that I met and a level of engagement that was remarkable. I feel quite fortunate to have had such a close, personal look at Holland Hall and to see, with great clarity, that you and your colleagues put students first in everything that you do.”
