This past weekend Ms.Van Sise and Mrs. Dogan took eight students to Chicago for college visits and a look at what college expectations are all about. Students had information sessions and campus tours of the University of Chicago and the Illinois Institute of Technology, where they learned about academic expectations, the college application process, programs of undergraduate and graduate studies, and guidelines for entering and completing college. Students were wowed by the size of the campuses and the rigor of the academics!
It was a wonderful experience and a great way to involve students in conversations about college and life beyond high school!
