The Idea of College Starts Early

Expose your young family to the idea of college by taking them to college events on campus.

Take advantage of kids programs, family events, and performances at local colleges. Walking onto campus will make your family feel comfortable and welcomed. This opens the mind to belonging in this space of higher education.

When I was young, my father went back to college to complete his degree. I saw him working on homework. We visited the library on campus. I even remember how excited I was to use the printer. These seemingly small experiences made an impact. My small self felt comfortable on that large campus.
