College Nights

The ultimate introduction to the college prep process.

Since our company’s inception in 2010, our College Night seminars have been the ultimate introduction to the college prep process – even for families who have been through it before with the college prep environment constantly changing.

Invite your friends, family, and anyone you think would benefit from info on the college process. Both students and parents are welcome. We customize our presentation to any audience: students from middle through high school, parents, athletic recruits, international students, and anyone else who would benefit from our knowledge of the ins and outs of college admissions. If you want to learn, we want to help. The College Night is NOT a sales pitch. We will not even talk about our services unless asked, though we will hand out some information about our company. Our goal is to become a resource for the night by providing a roadmap for how to navigate the college admissions process and answering any and all questions. We hope to establish a foundation of trust in the community based on providing valuable information at no cost to families.

Host a College Night

Zoom Seminars

Organize a group of parents (students are welcome, too) for a set day and time, and we will send out a video conference link so everyone can attend the semi-private, interactive seminar from the comfort of their own homes.

In-Home College Nights

Invite a group of other parents and students to your home and an Ivy Experience Founder or Director will lead a comprehensive and enlightening seminar.

Seminars for Community Organizations and Schools

Ivy Experience has presented in numerous group settings, including:
– Parent and Back to School Nights at high schools
– Community center events
– HSA and PTA meetings
– National Charity League and other organization meetings

The College Night can cover any topic you want. We have no set presentation: the night is personalized to the needs and concerns of our audience.
