Your senior year is an exciting time, including the beginning of many "lasts"--high school Homecoming, football games, senior recognition nights, etc. A new set of "firsts" is also occurring, such as admission applications, scholarship essays, financial aid information, and the need to meet deadlines to help you finalize your college choice.
Throughout your senior year, continue to build your resume by achieving academic success, as well as participating in extracurricular activities. Colleges are interested in well-rounded students.
The college preparation that takes place during your senior year is filled with a lot of details and paperwork. It is very important that you involve your parents with this process.
Below are the tasks you should complete during the month of October:
- Take the SAT and/or ACT.
- Continue working on your admissions essays.
- If you haven't already done so, attend college planning and/or financial aid information nights and college fairs.
- Visit your top school choices. If possible, make appointments with faculty, staff, and students.
- Complete applications for every scholarship for which you may be eligible.
- Meet with your guidance counselor to develop a college admission and financial aid application plan.
- Contact the schools' financial aid offices to determine which forms they require. Some schools may require special forms.
- Finalize portfolios, audition tapes, writing samples, or other evidence of talent if required for admission.

High School Weekend (October 17-18, 2014)
Hosted by the Mizzou Engineering Student Council, High School Weekend gives high school sophomores, juniors and seniors a taste of various engineering disciplines and a flavor of campus life. Groups will meet with faculty and current engineering students, work in groups on design challenges and dine in the MU residence and dining halls.
Lego Camp Weekends (2nd-9th grades):
LEGO Robotics Camps are designed to foster an understanding of the engineering design process through individual and small team challenges to build and program robots using LEGOs and LEGO NTX software. Activities are both educational and fun, and camps feature a low staff to camper ratio ensuring individualized attention.
Mother & Daughter Engineering Day (April 2015)
Mother & Daughter Engineering Day demonstrates the fun and excitement of engineering and computer technology to middle school-age young women and their mothers through hands-on activities. Led by the college’s student chapter of the Society of Women Engineers and women faculty members, participants will share lunch with current female students, hear special alumni speakers and guests, and finish the day with activities at the Mizzou Rec Center and a field trip to the campus bookstore. Lunch is provided.
Engineering Summer Camp (July 2015)
Mizzou Engineering’s Summer Camps demonstrate the variety of things that engineers do and the tools of their trades to high school sophomores, juniors and seniors. Mornings are dedicated to learning about MU’s engineering disciplines from leaders in their fields. Afternoons offer practical experience in labs and through industry visits, and evenings are spent testing student skills in friendly competitions. Besides trying their hands at solving engineering challenges, campers will experience life as college students and will have the opportunity to make new friends and have fun along the way.
