Create Your Future Night
The Pflugerville ISD College and Career Team would like to invite 9-11th grade families to our Create Your Future Night on March 8th, 2022. During this event, you will have the opportunity to meet various college & military representatives from 5:30 – 8:10 PM. The event will be held at Pflugerville High School for all PFISD families.

We will begin with a College & Military Fair from 5:30-6:30 p.m. where you will be able to talk to various institutions from across Texas and the Country. After the College Fair, we invite you to attend three sessions that will help you understand more about the College & Military Enrollment/Enlistment process. These presentations will be held by the experts themselves (College & Military Reps) and focus on various topics including (but not limited to):

  • General Application Tips & Tricks (deadlines, automatic admission, what to include in the app, where to apply, etc.)
  • How to Build a College Resume
  • Essay Writing Process
  • How to Enroll in Your Institution
  • The Benefits of an Out of State or Private Institution
  • The Benefits of Beginning at a Community College

Logistics: Please park in any parking lot at Pflugerville High School and enter PHS from door number 40. This set of doors is located in the very front of our school. The doors will not open until 5:30 and we hope that you can stay to take advantage of the entire program.

We do encourage all 9-11th grade students to attend the program as this is an opportunity to learn from the experts.

(There is no need to register beforehand. We will send another reminder out Monday)
