ABOUT COLLEGE COUNSELING

A SERVANT TO TWO MASTERS

Fall is a busy time in the College Counseling Office. Seniors are meeting regularly with college counselors, refining college lists, putting the finishing touch on their personal essays, and completing college applications. We look forward to seeing you during Family Weekend. If you are the parent of a boarding senior, please make an appointment with your child’s college counselor during your visit. Parents of day students may make an appointment at another mutually convenient time.

Written in 18th century Italy, Carlo Goldoni’s masterpiece, A Servant to Two Masters is one of the most loved and widely performed plays of all time. The story revolves around Truffaldino, a witty and greedy servant, who tries to make an extra buck by serving two masters at once. Full of mistaken identities, miscommunication, and deception, A Servant to Two Masters will make you laugh until it hurts.

APPOINTMENTS FOR FAMILIES OF BOARDING STUDENTS ARE AVAILABLE AT PLIMPTON HALL FRIDAY, 8:00 – 11:00 a.m. SATURDAY, 8:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Parents are required to sign up online for meetings. Information will be emailed three weeks prior to Family Weekend.
