Don't miss out on special opportunities for college freshmen

Colleges are increasingly offering a variety of special programs for incoming freshmen that offer additional experiences, prestige and sometimes scholarship money. To be considered for these programs sometimes called honors or leadership programs, students must indicate their interest on their college admission application and file their college application early.
There are many benefits to honors and leadership programs. Students should take a look at these options to determine if they have an interest, if they feel the programs are a good fit for them and if they feel they will have the extra time such programs often require. Some of the programs offer special smaller classes, seminars with the college president, perks like early registration and scholarships. The programs also often have a service component that will involve a time commitment.
The benefits of honors and leadership programs go beyond scholarships and other tangible benefits. Students in such programs often report that the most rewarding part of the experience was establishing a relationship with college leaders and professors as well as participation in student ambassador programs where they met visiting dignitaries. Encourage your high school senior to look at the special options that may exist a colleges of interest and to determine application deadlines. Typical deadlines are November 1 or 15 or December 1. The student may need to write an additional essay as part of the admissions application if they want to be considered. Most such programs are selective.
