The William Floyd High School Counseling Center recently held its first of several on-site admissions events of the year, in which admissions representatives from schools of higher education come to meet with students, answer their questions and showcase what their schools have to offer. Four schools – Suffolk County Community College, SUNY Farmingdale, St. Joseph’s College and LIU Post – attended this particular event.
During the day, more than 100 students received on-site acceptances including 78 for Suffolk County Community College, 10 for Farmingdale State University, nine for LIU Post and seven for St. Joseph’s College. Many others had their applications pending additional information.
On-site admissions events also offer unique scholarship opportunities for students. William Floyd High School senior Kayla Scharf received a full scholarship offer from LIU Post for $144,455 the day of the event. Scharf is still considering her options but expressed her gratitude for LIU Post’s generous offer, as well as her family and teachers for their love and support throughout her academic career. If she accepts LIU Post’s scholarship offer, she will study International Relations and Diplomacy.
