Not a senior.
Not a site coordinator.
Not a faculty or staff member at an official College Application Week site.
But wanting to help inspire students to participate in CAW and achieve their postsecondary dreams.
Does that sound like you? Have you been looking for a way to get involved?
We've got the perfect opportunity for you!
We want to know when College Application Week hits the news! After last year's successful pilot at Taft 7-12 in Lincoln City, the local media outlet let the whole community know about it!
When we piloted Oregon College Application Week last year, we started small. With just 7 sites, most of which were very small (serving fewer than 50 seniors), I was cautiously optimistic about what "success" would look like. I knew we wouldn't see the kinds of big numbers that move the needle, as they had in Minnesota. In their first year, they nearly tripled the number of applications entering the Minnesota State University system's institutions during the designated week!
In 2012, Oregon joined a targeted national effort to increase the number of low-income students who apply to college.
Seven pilot sites participated in Oregon's first-ever College Application Week, December 3-14. Students and site coordinators reported great successes!
