NEW in 2020: Introducing the STARR College Search Series

The STARR College Search Series (or CSS) is a multi-part program geared towards high school juniors and seniors in an effort to help them navigate the college search. The program includes a 30-minute Welcome Session around the Series topic and then a 2.5-minute College Overview Session where students will get to hear from all of our St. Louis Area Regional Representatives on important information, upcoming deadlines, and insider tips you can only learn from our CSS events!
