College Weekend Visit

What is College Weekend?

College Weekend is a rare opportunity given to underrepresented students to gain full exposure to the college experience. This interactive program is for three days and two nights. During this weekend high school juniors (spring) and seniors (fall) will reside with current students while partaking in the academic side of college which includes SAT prep classes, essay writing classes, and financial aid/admissions presentations and the social side which includes a cultural program on campus such as Diwali, Heritage, or MSL Night. The weekend is coordinated by Charisma Presley, Assistant Director and student co-chairs. Students wanting to participate should complete and submit the (Senior) OR (JUNIOR) application along with the School endorsement form by the deadline. Attendees are limited to four (4) students per school.
