Students Invited to Get Started on College Applications with Free Presentation at Goleta Library

The Goleta branch of the Santa Barbara Public Library System is hosting a talk for soon-to-be high school seniors to help get them started on their college searches and applications.

Getting Started on College Applications will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Monday, May 11 and will be repeated at 6 p.m. Thursday, June 25. The Goleta Library is located at 500 N. Fairview Ave. in Goleta.

The free presentations will be by local college counselor Tish O’Connor.

“Building a list of colleges where the student will apply is often the first step toward college success,” O’Connor said. “Developing a portfolio of written responses to application prompts is a time-consuming but critical process. Rising seniors should make effective use of their summers to complete these steps.”

For more information about these information sessions, contact the Goleta Library at 805.964.7878.

— Allison Gray is the branch supervisor for the Goleta Library.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
