College/University/Military Representatives - Schedule Visits to Mason High School! We welcome visits to Mason High School. We use an online service called Repvisits for scheduling. There are two visit types: Cafeteria visits are Monday-Friday during our three lunches in the cafeteria. These are 10:11 AM-11:59 AM Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. We have homeroom on Wednesdays, so the cafeteria times are 10:25 AM-12:00 PM. These are open to both college/university admissions as well as all branches of the military.
Small Group Classroom visits are only available when we have homeroom on Wednesdays from 12:05-12:45 AM. These are reserved for college/university admissions representatives only. These meet in our library or a classroom (when library is in use). These visits are 40 minutes (not the lunch time that is noted on the website).
Please click on the link https://counselorcommunity.com/ to create an account and schedule a visit. We are working with repvisits.com regarding the two visit types, but until they are able to create a new template, please note that classroom visits are 40 minutes and are college admissions only. Thank you and any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Kathleen Oakes at email@example.com or 517-676-9055.
