    Interview with Your Bennington Admissions Counselor

    Bennington College

    Brenna May, Associate Director of International Admissions

    Brenna works with First-Year students from high schools in Africa, Asia, Australia, Eastern Europe, Middle East, New Zealand, and the Pacific Islands.

    The Bennington Interview is open to rising seniors and transfer applicants. It is an optional part of the application and a chance for us to get to know you beyond what exists on paper. It’s not just another hoop to jump through, but rather an opportunity for us to have a real conversation about you, your interests, and your ambitions for your college experience.

    If you aren't ready for an interview, we strongly encourage a virtual information session and/or a student-led virtual tour. They are small group conversations open to students and family members at any point in the college search process. We also have Virtual Open Houses throughout the year. Check out what's available here!

    Will you be in Vermont to visit us in person? We would love to see you, and you can find the campus visit calendar here. We are so pleased to offer information sessions, tours, and interviews on our beautiful campus.

    If none of the available interview dates will work, you are welcome to contact Brenna directly to request another interview date and time, but please be aware that interviews are first come, first served and additional times may not be availableYou should also note that interview slots in November, December, and January will fill up. Consider interviewing earlier to guarantee a spot!
