Making the right decisions about college can be complicated. That’s why there is the Vigo County “KnowHow2Go” College Success Workshops, a roadmap for preparing for the college experience. Designed for high school juniors, the path to success starts at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College on May 8, 2014, from 9 a.m. - 2p.m. in the Rooney Library. By attending this free seminar, students will have an opportunity to attend a variety of sessions about higher education to jump-start the college search process.
- Students will select from the seminar sessions below:
- 21st Century Scholars
- College Student Panel Q & A

- Student Life
Faculty and staff members from Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College, Harrison College, Indiana State University, Ivy Tech State College and Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology will lead the sessions. Lunch will be provided.
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 Workshop is made possible by a grant from the Indiana Commission for Higher Education.
