Prescott HS HOH III GEAR UP cohort students had an opportunity to travel on two college visitations these last few weeks. The first trip was to Eastern Washington University in Cheney. While there they took a college tour first thing and the night before it had snowed lightly, something that our students had not seen much of the last few years. The highlight of the visit was a meeting with admissions and a student panel. After the visit, a lot of the students put EWU on their list of possible colleges to attend after high school graduation.
The second visitation was to WSU Tri Cities to attend the College Planning Day. The students enjoyed the trip and found it very valuable, because they were given the opportunity to listen to four presenters from four different colleges. The students felt that GEAR UP should have more trips like this when possible. The next college visitation that Prescott GEAR UP students will have an opportunity to attend will be Business Week at Gonzaga University this summer.
