CBO Newsletter: October 2012

UChicago | Counselors and Teachers | Be Involved

Reaching out to you with the latest news...

We see you as a partner in our effort to identify and enroll the best and brightest students that your program has to offer. To aid our joint effort I wanted to update you on the newest breakthroughs and "goings-on" on the UChicago campus. Hopefully this gazette of news and notes will help you envision the kinds of students who could thrive here. I am sure this e-newsletter will excite you and provoke conversation. Feel free to contact me, Colin Melinda Johnson, Director of Enrollment Multicultural Outreach, with your comments and questions.

Let's work together to create a fantastic Class of 2017!
