March College Madness

Walton students and parents are invited to attend the East Cobb College Insider Panels scheduled throughout the month of March.  The Walton counseling team is working with Georgia College & State University to present a series of virtual college panels to include college admission counselors and academic representatives from various fields of study and college programs.


Virtual panel discussions will include topics such as:

  •          What type of programs are offered at each college

  •          What students should be looking for in a college program

  •          Questions students should be asking when researching colleges. 


The goal is to help students as they begin their college search so that they will have better insight into the programs and opportunities offered by colleges, and they can find the right fit.


The first virtual panel is Wednesday, March 3rd at 1:00 pm and will focus on Engineering programs.

Mississippi State UniversityHilda Queiroz, Admission Counselor & Joy Smith, Admission Coordinator, College of Engineering
