We Are Getting to College

Our fall Getting to College Weekend is always packed with information and activity for Crusade seniors, and this year was no exception. At the Getting to College Conference on Saturday, October 18, 35 Crusaders got tips from a panel of speakers and a daylong series of workshops about how best to embark on the college application process. On Sunday, October 19, 53 Crusaders attended the Annual Regional College Fair hosted by the Rhode Island Association of Admissions Officers at Rhode Island College.

Many thanks to our higher education partners at Rhode Island College, the University of Rhode Island, and the Community College of Rhode Island, for contributing a panel of experts to speak to Crusaders. Our panelists were: Kristina Moyet, Coordinator for URI’s Talent Development Program; Michelle Bourgeois, Concierge Coordinator for Connect to College at CCRI; LaTanya Monteiro, Educational Support Facilitator, Learning for Life at RIC; and Jocivell Adames, a RIC senior who is a Learning for Life staff member.

We also thank Don Mays, Associate Director of Undergraduate Admission and Coordinator of Multicultural Recruitment at Roger Williams University, for inspiring our students to craft meaningful and memorable college essays, and Harrison Grigsby, Coordinator/Counselor for the Educational Opportunity Center at CCRI, for offering vital financial aid pointers. Here below are photos from Saturday’s conference.
