Are you a First Generation college student? If so, I would encourage you to sign up for CollegeWeek Live. They are hosting a First Generation Students Day on Thursday, September 25 from 3:00 – 10:00 pm EST (that’s 1:00-8:00 pm in Utah). This is an on-line college fair where you can:
- Chat online with 20+ schools including Harvard University and Duke University.
- Learn steps & strategies to make it to and through college.
- Watch an exciting film about four students who are pursuing their college dreams (trailer above).
- Enter to win a $1,000 scholarship, just for researching colleges online!
If you are not a First Generation college student, I would still encourage you to sign up for CollegeWeek Live. There are lots of fantastic resources, webinars, and live events that will help you with your college preparation…and they’re fun! Plus, you can virtually tour campuses all over the United States and chat directly with college reps.
P.S. The First Generation film is great! If you’re interested, sign up for CollegeWeek Live and then search for first generation. You will see a list of First Generation resources. Look for the description of the film/documentary, and then click on it, grab some popcorn, and enjoy!
