What to Expect

Teachers can expect students to participate in workshops that align with college awareness and career skill-building. Visit guides facilitate every workshop, allowing students to hear from the perspective of current college students and participate in interactive activities to build on their college-going identity.

For the high school workshops, you can register the same cohort of students in the 4 different workshops through any campus. However, when you register, do not enroll the same cohort of students for the same workshop offered at another campus as the workshop will have the same content.
