College Rep Visits

Representatives from more than 200 colleges and universities visit Wheat Ridge HS during the school day and give presentations about their school, meet with students, and answer questions.
These visits are held in the College/Career Center (Post Grad) located in the counseling office and in other locations as needed.

Who may attend College Rep Visits?

Any student may attend the College Rep visit.  All visits are listed in Naviance and each student can go in and sign up for the visit.  A pass will be sent to the student in class to attend the visit.

Why are College Prep Visits important? 
  • The rep who visits Wheat Ridge is quite often the person who reads and reviews applications from students.
  • Meeting with the Rep demonstrates the student’s interest in the school and gives the Rep a chance to put a face with the student’s name. Many colleges keep track of any contact the student has made with the college.
  • Presentations at Wheat Ridge are more private and interactive than large college fairs where students move from table to table.
