Welcome to WSU Early Outreach
GEAR UP has lots of good stuff planned for seniors at CHS. The first thing planned is a trip to the University of Idaho on October 4th for an event called “Envision Idaho,” a preview specifically for seniors that gives them a glimpse into what life would be like at the U of I. Next is WSU for Preview-Health Care Track on October 5th. This trip is specifically for students who are interested in health care professions so that they can see the different areas of study and meet students who are currently in the programs. Soon after will be the 4th annual Family College Planning Forum where we invite local colleges to come and host breakout sessions for parents and students. Later in October is Gonzaga University’s Preview Day on October 18th. This will be our first time attending a preview day at Gonzaga, while we have taken many trips to this college it will be exciting to attend a day that is designed just for seniors interested in this school.
The last trip we have planned before the weather turns harsh is the Spokane College Fair, this is always a favorite among CHS students since there are so many options to see as well as breakout sessions about applying to college, paying for college, and many other college related items! After the College Fair we hope to drive to Cheney to visit Eastern Washington University for a quick lunch and tour of the campus. We are also in the planning stages of an overnight to trip to a few Seattle Colleges in early November due to a high demand from students. We want to encourage our seniors to apply early to the college of their choice and want to help them make the most educated decision when it comes to the future of their academics – hopefully these trips will help us accomplish this goal!
