At Hostos Community College, students will learn from Visit Guides enrolled in programs like Media Design: Digital Design & Animation and Allied Health: Nursing & Dental Hygiene. Visit Guides will share unique stories about their college experiences, provide insightful resources, and discuss the steps necessary to prepare for college success. Students will also participate in a game called “Guess That Graduate”, that allows students to recognize and relate to some of today’s most influential pop cultural icons who also went to college. Students will walk away from this experience with a better understanding of the early steps they can take towards a successful college career, and of the lifelong opportunities that can be cultivated at Hostos.
At Lehman College, students will go on a virtual tour that brings awareness to the responsibilities of a college student. Students will participate in a kinesthetic warm up and learn about financial aid, tuition, and high school preparation. Visit Guides will use storytelling to provide insight on approaches middle schoolers can take as they begin to think about college.
At Bronx Community College (BCC), students will have the opportunity to experience a virtual tour of the college campus and learn about interests, careers, and majors from the perspective of current college students. Through the BCC STEM experience, students will participate in activities such as: using purple cabbage as an indication to test pH levels in foods, a virtual dissection of the human body and learning about the function of each organ, or learning about one’s blood type and its importance. In the BCC non-STEM experience, students will learn about the different artistic landmarks in New York City and view different dance moves that contribute to the Afrobeat experience.
