College Representative Meetings

Meetings with college reps have started! We are excited to host an increased number of schools from a large number of states. Please remember our policy:

Bishop Chatard College Representative Meeting Policy

Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors are eligible to attend college representative meetings when colleges visit Bishop Chatard. The meetings take place throughout the school day. Students must adhere to the following policies:

  • Please sign up for each visit via the online form. (You must access the form from your BCHS email account.) This allows us to make sure we have enough space in the room and allows you to make sure you are aware of all upcoming meetings.
  • You are responsible to make up any work missed.
  • You are not to miss a test, mandatory presentation, important quiz, etc., for a college meeting. If you are not sure what will take place in class on the day of the visit, be proactive and check with the teacher the day before or the morning of the meeting to see if it is acceptable for you to miss class.
  • You will go directly to the meeting room rather than reporting to class first. Attendance will be taken. 
  • You must be in the designated room or area of the meeting prior to the ringing of the bell or you will be marked tardy for that period’s class.
  • College meetings that take place during homeroom take up the entire period. You will not be released from the meeting room for any reason.
  • College meetings that take place during a class period will typically end well in advance of the end of the period; you will be given a pass to return to class promptly.
  •  The Guidance Office reserves the right to remove you from the college meeting if your academic profile does not match the admission standards of the school or if your actions do not meet the desired expectations for our students.

Why do we have college meetings?

  • Many colleges track students’ demonstrated interest. (If a student shows up at the high school meeting, it goes into the application record and can help chances of admission or scholarship. It is a reality of the admissions process these days.)
  •  This is a great chance for you to find out whether schools are a good fit for your academic statistics (GPA and test scores) and desired majors.
  • These meetings help to make you aware of deadlines, special scholarships, and important information regarding your applications to your top choice schools.
  • You will be able to expand your horizons to hear about some schools that you may not have previously considered.

“I never learn anything talking. I only learn things when I ask questions.” – Lou Holtz


If Notre Dame has taught me anything, it has been to let curiosity and ambition be my guide. For most of my life, I have forced myself to conform to one goal – to be a doctor. And I didn’t let myself look anywhere else or deviate from this standard formula. I was dead-set on the idea that going to medical school was everything I wanted and more. Maybe this wasn’t truly the case.

My freshman year at Notre Dame has opened my eyes to the idea that I don’t have to be a doctor if there are perhaps other things I am called to do – like pharmaceutical research or entrepreneurship. While being a doctor is a very rewarding path to walk, it no longer appears to be the path that I’m taking. As I have delved deeper into the academics that Notre Dame has offered me, I have been able to gain a better grasp of what fulfills me, and what I find to be exciting. (more…)

I heard about Trine because I had a friend who was  planning on attending. When I started to look more into Trine, I fell in love with the size. On my visits, I realized very quickly how welcoming this campus is. At my high school, we were all a big family. I still get that similar vibe here, and Trine has truly become my second home. “It’s a Trine thing.”
