“In a community that boasts five institutions of higher learning, it is our responsibility to prepare high school students for college,” said Aaron Kelley, director of undergraduate admission at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College. “The College Success Seminars provide a forum for students to be exposed to information that they will find useful in their academic careers. We want students to think in terms of when I go to college, not if.”
This campaign is part of the national KnowHow2GO effort led by the Ad Council, American Council on Education and the Lumina Foundation for Education. The Vigo County “KnowHow2Go” College Success Seminar is made possible by a grant from the Indiana Commission for Higher Education.
