W.P. Carey Speaker

This lecture series brings students face-to-face with prominent college admissions officers from around the country.

The W.P. Carey ’48 College Admission Lecture Series occurs every year as part of Family Weekend. This lecture series, endowed by William Polk Carey '48, brings a representative from a renowned college or university admissions office to address students, parents, and faculty about the college admissions process. Offering the latest perspectives on the process, these lectures have proven to be a valuable tool for Pomfret students and their parents during the college search.


Joy St. John director of admission at Harvard College, was the 2023 W.P. Carey Speaker. She spoke to students and parents during Family Weekend — October 13 and 14.
