COLLEGE RECRUITMENT NIGHT
Recruiters from seven Arizona colleges and universities were present at Phoenix Prep Academy. Recruiters from Arizona State University, University of Arizona, Grand Canyon University, Glendale Community College, Mesa Community College, Paradise Community College, and South Mountain Community College. Some colleges had more than one recruiter. Parents and students in attendance were treated to good music by Mariachi Luz del Sur and delicous comida Mexicana catered by Mariana's. The program consisted of recruiters giving short presentations and then parents and students talking individually with recruiters at their tables. Information was provided. In addition, six door prizes were given away.
To start the journey to college, four easy first steps were offered to students.
Step One: Say to yourself, "Yes, I want to go to college."
Step Two: Tell others, especially teachers and counselors, you want to go to college.
Step Three: Start to ask questions about what you have to do to go to college.
Step Four: Start to work on your studies, to be a smart student.
