But it's more than that—you'll take a big step forward in your college preparation and you'll meet some of your eventual professors and classmates. Current students have said that their Academic Scholarship Day helped reinforce that Chatham was the right place for them and made them ahead of the game in planning out their college careers. 

"My interviewer on Scholarship Interview Day actually became my academic advisor, too. Talking and feeling comfortable with her that day had a big impact on my decision to attend Chatham."—Rebekah Dunn '17

Build Relationships, Build Your Career

Interviews take place with faculty in your academic area of interest, and many students report choosing the professors they meet with as their academic advisors. Throughout your time at Chatham, your advisor not only guides your studies, but also helps with internship, employment, and post-graduate opportunities. Attending Academic Scholarship Day can be the start of that connection that lasts well beyond your time at Chatham.

Prep to Make the Most of Your Day

Take care of the details. Ready yourself by creating sample questions. Practice with mock interviews. It'll help you make the most of your Academic Scholarship Day. Things to prepare for and think about:

  • What to wear? Dress for success: plan to dress for your day and show you mean business.
  • What makes Chatham tick for you? What does Chatham offer that you are excited to learn more about? Or what do you think you can add to Chatham?
  • What's your plus? If every university you've applied to offers your major, what is the "plus" outside of the classroom that you want to explore and get involved in at Chatham? What do you want to accomplish through it?
