BHS College and Career Center Bulletin        

        Friday, October 5, 2012


*Indicates updated information.


*SAT Word of the Week:  Mundane - Common and ordinary; boring; not spiritual
and heavenly. Mary was not excited about doing mundane chores.


*UC Personal Statement Writing Workshop for Seniors - This event has been
rescheduled, and we will promote the date and time via the BHS etree and BHS
morning announcement systems as soon as we receive confirmation from the UC
representative who will be facilitating the workshop.


*College Essay Readers Available:  We are fortunate to have this outstanding
support service available for our seniors this fall.  The October-November
schedule for essay readers can be obtained at the front desk in the College
and Career Center.  Essay readers will be available every day in the morning
and during the lunch period, and after school on M,T,W &Th.


Each Monday morning, Ms. Price and Mr. Barton will open up an additional
week of appointments for seniors to sign-up.  The schedules fill up fast, so
we recommend coming before first period if you'd like to secure an
appointment time.  Seniors may also drop in any day at lunch or after school
without an appointment to have shorter questions answered. College Advisor
assignments:  Ms. Price - BIHS and AC students with last names L-Z. Mr.
Barton - AHA, AMPS, CAS, GRN and AC students with last names A-K.



Many college representatives visit Berkeley High's College and Career Center
every year.  Seniors may attend up to 10 of these meetings, with the
permission of the teacher whose class you are missing.  Sign up in advance
in the College and Career and pick up a permission slip.
