Georgia’s best come to Berry!

Rob Franek

Rob Franek of “The Princeton Review” shares insight about selecting a college during interview day for the 2017 Governor’s Honors Program.

More than 1,600 of Georgia’s best and brightest high school sophomores and juniors passed through the Gate of Opportunity on Feb. 25 to interview for the 2017 Governor’s Honors Program. Of those, approximately 650 will return for a four-week residential experience later this summer.

This is Berry’s first year as the host site for the nation’s longest running summer enrichment program. The Governor’s Office of Student Achievement chose Berry from a group of colleges and universities interested in hosting the program, which previously had been held on the campus of Valdosta State University.

Berry’s population swelled by nearly 5,000 as prospective GHP students, parents and volunteer interviewers – many of them teachers from across Georgia – flocked to campus for the daylong interview session. Joining them was Rob Franek, editor-in-chief of The Princeton Review, who shared his insights with parents on the college admissions process. Franek’s tips.

Selected students will return to Berry on June 18 to begin the month-long program. Click here to learn more.
