InitialView Introduces TUESDAY TALKS – Connecting You With Admissions Officers

InitialView is proud to launch Tuesday Talks, a weekly chance for students and parents in China to connect directly with US admissions officers as they talk about US higher education and the admissions process.

The series begins this Tuesday, April 14, 2020, with the topic “The Power of a Liberal Arts College”, hosted by admissions officers from Bowdoin College, Grinnell College, Haverford College, and Occidental College.

The following colleges in groups of 3 – 4 will participate in subsequent Tuesday Talks: the University of Illinois (UIUC), Georgia Tech, the University of Virginia, Vanderbilt University, Northwestern University, Duke University, Tufts University, Boston University, Claremont McKenna College, Boston College, Northeastern University, Davidson College, and Middlebury College, with more expected to join in the upcoming weeks.

Subsequent Tuesday Talks involve topics like, “The Benefits of a Public Research University”, “The Benefits of Boston and Its Private Universities”, “A Study of International Student Outcomes”, and “Holistic Admissions in a Time of Uncertainty”.

Presentation materials will be in both English and Chinese, and the presentations themselves will be streamed live on platforms accessible within China. Each Tuesday Talk will also have a Q&A period in which participants can ask questions in Chinese.

We’re grateful to our high school sponsors (listed below), who are helping make this possible.
