ISD is excited to share that we have the good fortune of hosting Dr. Shawn Felton, Director of Undergraduate Admission at Cornell University on October 3 & 4. Dr. Felton is visiting ISD and Dakar on a trip sponsored by the United States Department of State. During his two days on campus, he will meet with students, parents, and faculty, and we are thrilled to share the highlights of his schedule for his visit.

We want to point out, in particular, the evening parent presentation, which will take place at 6pm on Thursday, October 3 in the Admin Conference Room. During this presentation for parents, Dr. Felton will discuss the process for admission in the USA and answer questions. This is a wonderful opportunity to hear from one of the truly great minds in the realm of college admissions in a small venue and to get your questions answered. Dr. Felton is a kind, compassionate, and fiercely intelligent individual, and we are confident you will enjoy his company. Parents, please do what you can to join us for this event!
In addition to the evening parent presentation, Dr. Felton will spend time with our juniors and seniors and then again with our freshmen and sophomores for group presentations. He will also do some work with our faculty on letters of recommendation while also spending time with admin and the counseling team. He will close out his visit to ISD with drop-in hours in the High School Counseling Office when students, teachers, and parents are welcome to stop by to ask questions.
Again, we are excited to welcome Dr. Felton to ISD and to Dakar, and we strongly encourage all, especially parents, to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity. We hope to see you there!
