College Representative Visits to Shepard
One of the best ways to learn about colleges is to meet with a representative from different colleges.  See the tab on the right of this page for procedures on how to meet with a college rep who is visiting our campus and dates of their visits.  September and October are busy with college visits so check the tab often for additions!
