High School Juniors Fall in Love with UA Cossatot
March 01, 2017
UA Cossatot faculty and staff hosted over 350 juniors from area high schools for “a day in the life of a college student” experience.
UA Cossatot hosted 109 juniors from Ashdown High School on the Ashdown campus. There were 24 juniors from Nashville High School, 21 from Kirby High School, and 14 from Umpire High School who visited the Nashville Campus. There were 115 juniors from De Queen High School, 54 from Horatio High School, and 34 from Dierks High School who attended the event on the De Queen Campus.
The college visit day included sitting in on a college class, eating in the Campus Café, learning from current students about getting involved in student organizations, financial aid opportunities, and more. This was the third year for UA Cossatot to host the Come Fall in Love with UA Cossatot event.
The goal of the event is to remove the fear factor often associated with going to college for high school students and to familiarize them with their community’s college. The event aims to increase the overall college-going rate of our area high schools.
Schools invited to participate in the events include De Queen, Horatio, Ashdown, Nashville, Mineral Springs, Dierks, Umpire, Kirby, Murfreesboro and Foreman.
