College Student Panels

Have questions about college? Want to hear personal stories about the college application process and university experience from Magnolia HS Graduates? Come to one or ALL of the college student panels!!

Our College Student Panel is a bit different than the traditional style. We’re using a “group speed dating style” this means that you will have the opportunity to talk to the panelists in a small group setting so you can ask more questions!
