Sharing Ideas: #whyichose videos

Beaverton High School is on a roll! Check out their Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook accounts to see all of the #whyichose videos they've been posting. They're asking students, faculty, staff, and alumni why they chose to continue their education beyond high school, and they're getting some great responses! Here's one:

 


In the News: HHS Gears Up for College Application Week

We're keeping an eye out for all the news media about Oregon College Application Week. If you see something we miss, be sure to send it our way!

Joining the movement in Oregon recognizing November as College Application Month, Hermiston School District, along with the city of Hermiston, proclaimed the first week in November to be College Application Week.


Sharing Ideas: CAW assemblies

Several schools host assemblies as part of their CAW events. Some assemblies happen before the event and are designed to build excitement and increase participation.

I suspect that others who haven't contacted us have similar questions, so for everyone's sake, here are some of those questions/answers. And don't forget to also review the questions/answers on the coordinator training post.


Sharing Ideas: tuition equity for undocumented students

Many schools and organizations participating in Oregon College Application Week work with students who are undocumented. You may or may not know which of your students are undocumented, and it is important that you are prepared to support all of your students, regardless of their immigration status. Therefore, we're offering the following information and sharing how some schools are planning to serve this population of students during their CAW event.


Sharing Ideas: application follow-up

Completing the application form is a critical part of applying to college, but it's not the only thing a student needs to do. In most cases, they'll need to submit supplemental credentials as well: transcripts, letters of recommendation, test scores. We've provided a one-page sheet we call "I Applied ... Now What?" that offers students a list of next steps, including a reminder to get those supplemental materials sent off to colleges as soon as possible.
