Portland Lutheran to host college workshop

Portland Lutheran School, 740 S.E. 182nd Ave., will host a college admission and financial aid workshop from 6:30-8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 20.

Sponsored by the East Multnomah Thrivent Chapter, this workshop is designed to clarify the often complex and overwhelming process of college admission and applying for financial assistance. The information presented will help high school students and their parents better understand what colleges look for in their applicants, maximize the potential for acceptance to each student’s college of choice, discover how to save money navigating the admissions maze and learn basic financial aid principles.
