College Representative Visits
Meeting with College Representatives who visit Orangewood is a great opportunity for our high school students to learn more about colleges that will be a good match for their goals and aspirations.
Personal interactions with a college admissions representative can be advantageous in a variety of ways, such as:
Exposure to colleges or universities (and their opportunities) that you may not otherwise be familiar with
The ability to ask targeted, specific questions in a small group setting
The chance to show demonstrated interest in a school and allow the admissions officer to put a face with a name.
Unless there is a special circumstance, most college representative visits are scheduled during lunch and break.
Students can view upcoming college visits in their SCOIR account and sign up with a click of a button. This will put them on the list to receive visit reminders in their email and help the counseling office provide the representative with an accurate number of expected students.
Students, to learn more about registering for a College Representative Visit with your SCOIR account, you can find a quick guide here.
For College Admission Representatives
One of the primary goals in our office is to increase student exposure to colleges nationwide and develop stronger relationships with post-secondary institutions. If you represent a college or university and will be in the Central Florida area, we would love to invite you to visit our students.
By registering through SCOIR, you will be able to see visit availability on your travel dates, get directions and more. We conduct visits during our break period and lunch, allowing students to attend without missing class. We will reserve a room to allow you to present in a manner that allows you to have the undivided attention of our students. If you do not see a time that works with your travel schedule, please do not hesitate to contact our office to see if an alternative time slot can be arranged.
