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 representative. Click the "Calendar" tab to see 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.
