Now that the data is all in, and we've shared the numbers with the world (see the press release here), we want to be sure to put a human face on Oregon College Application Week. We're still hearing from site coordinators about the one or two moments that showed them the importance of the event for their students and communities.
The results are in! Oregon’s College Application Week broke previous records of high school students applying to college, with more than 1,250 students participating in the recent statewide event. With the number of sites increasing four-fold and an over 200% increase in seniors participating, students applied to different types of postsecondary educational options, including certificate programs, two-year degree programs, and four-year degree programs over the two week event in late 2013.
