EHS College/Military Visits

The admission representatives that visit Eagan high school are the same people that review college applications. EHS College visits will be hosting virtual visits this year.

Students can view scheduled visits by logging into their Naviance Student account. We highly encourage students to register ahead of the meeting on their Naviance Student account. A link for the virtual visit will be available to join the day of the college visit. We ask that students do not miss class for these visits.

Dee-1 keeps it real as he uses his relatable college experience to talk to your students about the higher education decisions they’ll be making and what they can mean for their future. If Dee-1 could talk to his younger, high school self, no doubt he’d be laying down how important applying for free money first is.
