Dear WACAC Members,

We are thrilled to present to you (drumroll, please…) the WACAConversations blog! We will cover pressing issues in the admission profession, announce upcoming WACAC events, and share stories about the world of college counseling.

In addition to individual postings, we have confirmed a number of regular blog series, including:

  • New High School Counselor Series
  • Presidential Pontifications
  • Table for One: A Recruitment Story
  • Tech Tuesdays
  • Transfer Topics

You can learn more about these series and our bloggers by clicking on the tabs above. We will announce several other series over the coming month.

We hope to engage you in thoughtful (and sometimes fun) conversations throughout the year, whether through the blog or our newly updated Twitter and Facebook accounts.

We look forward to connecting with you!
