The Aragon Asian Parent Group (“AAPG”) kicked off the new 2016-2017 year with booths at PTSO’s Jump Start, welcoming parents of new and continuing Asian students.
Aragon Asian Parent Group's first event of the year was a huge success. On Thursday, Aug. 18th, we invited 11 Aragon Alumni from Stanford, Santa Clara University, Cal Poly SLO, Carnegie Mellon, Boston University, UC Berkeley & San Diego, Washington University in St. Louis, and College of San Mateo to participate in a panel discussion, sharing their experience, wisdom and insights as they have journeyed successfully through their first year of college.
We were fortunate to have Mr. Ed Sun, our AAPG Vice President and Stanford/Harvard Alumnus, to be the moderator of the event. Our panelists shared the valuable experiences they had with teachers and classes at Aragon that helped them discover their college majors and career paths. The discussion covered topics from advices on Aragon AP classes, taking SAT & ACT, writing college application essays, Early Action and Early Decision application processes and timeline, to activities that helped shape their individuality and impacted their college decisions.
The event was well attended by over a hundred students and parents. AAPG is grateful for the Aragon community continued support for all our events.
