Pomona Students to Discover 'Road to College'

CSU Logo (170px)The California State University is hitting the streets and helping middle and high school students throughout California realize their dream of going to college. From April 12 to May 14, the Road to College Tour will visit 23 locations, reaching thousands of students, parents, educators and community leaders.

The tour bus will stop at Fremont and Emerson middle schools in Pomona on Friday, April 16. Students will use laptop computers to learn about the CSU and the admissions process, and create an individual road map to college. In addition, students will explore career interests and majors, learn about college life, and receive information about financial aid and scholarships.

Student volunteers from Cal Poly Pomona will act as ambassadors to middle schoolers, sharing their college experiences and answering questions.

The second annual tour bus campaign for higher education and college preparation is funded by a $500,000 grant from AT&T to the CSU Foundation. The goal is to increase awareness of the importance of early academic preparation, to guide underserved students to college and to help build a pipeline of professionals for AT&T. Other tour stops in Southern California include Fullerton, San Bernardino, Long Beach and Los Angeles.
