"Our vision in hosting this seminar is for our staff and faculty to learn directly from the front line of college admissions offices how best to prepare our cadets for success on these college campuses," explains COL Todd Giszack, Academic Dean at FUMA.

Admissions officers representing a dozen colleges and universities participated in a College and University Admissions Roundtable discussion for faculty and staff in the Guy Beatty Library on the campus of Fork Union Military Academy on Wednesday morning. For more than two hours, the college admissions personnel discussed the characteristics of their school's ideal admissions candidates and answered questions from the teachers in attendance.

"Our vision in hosting this seminar is for our staff and faculty to learn directly from the front line of college admissions offices how best to prepare our cadets for success on these college campuses," explains COL Todd Giszack, the Academic Dean at Fork Union Military Academy. "As a college preparatory school," Giszack continued, "it is vital that our programs be on the leading edge of preparing young men for success after high school."

The roundtable brought together admissions professionals from the University of Virginia, Virginia Tech, Virginia Commonwealth University, James Madison University, Christopher Newport University, University of Mary Washington, Radford University, Roanoke College, Bluefield College, Randolph Macon College, Bridgewater College, and Virginia Wesleyan College. Such a large gathering of college admissions officers for a panel discussion was unprecendented in this region in recent memory, and demonstrates Fork Union Military Academy's commitment to leadership as a college preparatory institution.

"That so many college admissions professionals would travel to our campus to participate in this event is testament to the value these colleges have seen in admitting young men with a diploma from Fork Union Military Academy in past years," said Dan Thompson, Fork Union's Director of Communications.
