Hi Christine,

 

Greetings from the Kinney Center at Saint Joseph’s University! My name is Brooke Darreff and I am the new Associate Director of Operations at the Kinney Center. My role involves recruiting passionate students to volunteer and work in Kinney Center programs, and ensure that their experience is meaningful and worthwhile. I am reaching out to local high schools in hopes that you would be willing to send high achieving students through our high school volunteer program.

The Kinney Center for Autism Education and Support, located on the campus of Saint Joseph’s University, has a two-fold mission: to train the autism professionals of tomorrow, while supporting and serving the individuals and families affected by autism today. Through the fulfillment of this mission we have served more than 900 families and train up to 150 undergraduates annually. 

The Kinney Center is currently seeking high school volunteers to serve as peer role models in our summer camp program. This experience will provide high school students with hands-on experience working with individuals with ASD, while creating meaningful friendships and connections with campers and fellow students. High School volunteers are asked to volunteer for a week of camp (Monday - Thursday 9:30am - 3:30pm). They can choose to participate in one or multiple weeks.

Due to COVID-19, our plans are constantly evolving to ensure the safety of our clients and staff.  We are planning to hold Camp 2021 on-ground, but will have alternative roles if camp transitions to a virtual format. 

If there are any students who would be interested in participating please share the link with them. I would love to set up a call to discuss how we could formalize a partnership where Kinney could provide engaging opportunities for your high schoolers all year long. Thank you for your time and if you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me directly at bdarreff@sju.edu. Additionally, if it is an opportunity for me to speak with individual students, student groups or organizations directly about the experience and opportunities here at Kinney, I would be excited to connect.

Sincerely, 

Brooke Darreff ’10

We’ve been fortunate to see a huge increase in our applications this fall, up 53% over this time last year, as well as greeting more visitors to campus with our masks on, of course.

Admissions @ UD Newsletter

Can you believe it’s October already?

College application season is in full swing. At UD, students can choose to apply early action or for a regular decision. To apply early action, students must complete their applications by Nov. 1. Students who apply early action get their decision no later than Jan. 31 and it is non-binding. Applications that are unfinished after Nov. 1 will be switched to regular decision.

Tricks and Tips for Your Students
 
Tip 1: Find more information about our general academic requirements, and any special requirements for more competitive majors like nursing, engineering and business, on our website.
 
Tip 2: Throughout the application process, students should use their personal email if possible. Why? Sometimes high-school email servers block emails sent from colleges.
 
Tip 3: About 24 - 48 hours after students submit their application, they’ll receive an email to set up their student portal, My Blue Hen Home. Students should check their portal often for updates.
 
Tip 4: Students applying early action, should complete their application and get in all materials, including their honors essay, a minimum of five business days before the Nov. 1 deadline. This ensures that we can process all student materials in time for the deadline.
 
Tip 5: Competitive majors with limited seats like engineering and nursing tend to fill up fast. To have the best chance at admission to these majors, it’s a good idea for students to complete their application by the early action deadline. Of course, many students are admitted after the early action deadline.
 
Visit our Preparing for College page to find more tricks and tips—not just for seniors, but for sophomores and juniors as well.
 

What’s New @ UD?
 
Our fall open house, Blue and Golden, will be virtual this year. At Blue and Golden, students can hear from faculty and students about the majors that interest them, find out more about study abroad, housing and much more. To register for one of our three dates, students can click here.
 
The admissions office is now offering both guided and self-guided tours of campus. In addition to our many virtual options, students and families can now visit campus in person. To register for an in-person tour, students should visit our website: www.udel.edu/visitUD.

Diamond Challenge 2021 is here. If your students are interested in entrepreneurship and have a great business idea to pitch, please join us for our Diamond Challenge 2021. Teens from around the country and the world engage with a like-minded community, compete for $100,000 in awards and learn about entrepreneurship.

New majors this year:

To find out more about all our majors, students should visit our Major Finder. There students can find a brief overview of the major, including a sample curriculum, and review some of the careers our graduates from that major have landed.

Work with International Students?

Our assistant directors of international admissions, Erin Bastien and John Ettore, are readily available to meet with you and your students. If your students would like to meet with Erin or John to learn more about UD or discuss their application and the admission process, they can schedule a one-on-one appointment.

International Scholarships Opportunities at UD: International students are automatically considered for international scholarships ranging from $5,000 – $18,000 annually just by applying to UD. 

Just for Fun

Did you know UD has its own creamery, making ice cream from cows right on campus? For Halloween, UDairy has made a special flavor: Muffin Better than Pumpkin. Take a break and tease yourself with more yummy flavors!

Update from the Director of Admission
 

Welcome back to what I’m sure is a very unfamiliar looking ’20-’21 school year. It’s hard to believe we’re still living through a global pandemic that has forced us all to rethink how we behave and function in both our personal and professional lives. Despite COVID, I hope you were able to enjoy a relaxing summer that involved relaxing and spending time with friends and family!

 

We were proud to welcome a pretty large class of first year students to campus in early August. Despite mask wearing and social distancing rules, they seem to be enjoying their transition into college life. Here are some other characteristics of the Class of 2024:
 

65% came from outside Indiana
Nearly 30% in leadership positions in high school clubs/student government
66% were engaged in community service
70% were athletes
20% were athletic team captains
30% were musicians
23% were thespians

 

Applications are rolling in and we’ll begin reading in the coming weeks. We hope to begin sending out notifications by mid-October. When you find a few minutes, check out some updates on our application process and requirements, info about ways you and your students can connect with us both on campus and virtually, admission counselor contact information, and much more.

 

On behalf of our entire admission team, I want to thank you for the continued support you give to your students and to our staff. We look forward to working with you this year and wish you all the best as you navigate the complications of life this fall.

Application Season is underway!

Time flies! Last year was a record year for applications to Saint Mary's College, and we continue to offer our extreme gratitude to you for encouraging so many amazing young women to apply for a spot in the class of 2024. As the leaves slowly begin to change colors and the air gets a little chillier, we are finding ourselves ready and excited to begin reading applications and welcoming students to the Saint Mary's class of 2025. Although this is definitely not a normal semester, we continue doing everything we can to make our application process as straightforward and accessible as possible. As a reminder, the requirements for a student to apply for admission consideration at Saint Mary's include:

 

1. Application (available on the CommonApp)
2. Official transcript
3. Secondary school report with counselor recommendation
4. Personal essay
5. ACT and/or SAT scores (unless applying test optional)

 

For a more detailed overview of our admission process, please follow the link below!

 

Application Requirements

Changes in our Admission Process:

1. In years prior, we have had a 3.2 GPA minimum requirement for students who wished to apply test optional. Starting this year, we will not have a minimum GPA requirement for students who wish to apply for admission without test scores.

 

2. Every student who applied to Saint Mary's College is automatically considered for a merit scholarship based on their GPA, test scores (unless applying test optional), and class rank (if the student's school ranks). Last year, scholarships ranged from $12,500 to $26,000. This year, merit scholarships have increased and now range from $15,000 to $30,000.

Test Optional Policy
 
Visit Our Campus

To adhere to CDC guidelines, we are currently offering multiple virtual and in-person visit options for interested students! Visiting a campus and meeting with admission staff can help your interested students determine if Saint Mary's is the best fit for them. At this time, we are offering in-person outdoor student-led tours (with inside stops in our athletic facility and library), virtual informational meetings with admission staff, virtual student-led tours, virtual office hours throughout the fall semester, and virtual events.

 

Please know that procedures and plans can change at any time depending on multiple factors. The best way to stay up-to-date with campus protocols is by visiting our website. The link below offers more information regarding our campus visit options for the fall 2020 semester.

How to Connect with Us

Our counselors will be using Rep Visits and SCOIR as their primary method for scheduling virtual high school visits and events this fall. If you have not yet made a free account on either platform, we strongly recommend it! If your school does not use either site, please feel free to contact your admission counselor to schedule a visit. We are flexible and happy to accommodate whatever scheduling method you will be using.

FAQs
Every day, we are hearing from students as they try to navigate through the new changes to the application process. In addition to our regular FAQs, we sent all seniors in our database this email to hopefully alleviate some of their concerns.
