GAINING EARLY AWARENESS AND READINESS FOR UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS (GEAR UP)

Welcome to WSU Early Outreach

Clarkston AVID visits Gonzaga University

For one final trip of the year, the Clarkston High School freshman AVID class toured the Gonzaga University campus along with AVID/WSU GEAR UP tutors and AVID Elective teachers. Upon arrival the group broke into two groups and was escorted by knowledgeable student tour guides. The guides shared a wealth of information along the tour, such as important information concerning available degree programs, campus buildings, and how to become involved in campus life. After the tour, the entire group met in a classroom with an admissions counselor. The counselor provided vital admissions information and shared Gonzaga’s selection criteria. In addition, she gave AVID students advice concerning the importance of a rigorous schedule in high school, GPA, extra-curricular activities, and community involvement. All students filled out and submitted a post-card requesting admissions information from Gonzaga. Students were then treated to lunch in the cafeteria, which offered a variety of choices and catered to multiple dietary requirements. The trip was not only fun, but also a great reminder to the freshman AVID class that it is never too early to start planning for college!
