In the News: KCC hires first admissions director (who will present to students during CAW)

Having a new admissions director means increasing the opportunities for outreach.The new director will work with KCC's High School Outreach Coordinator, Ann Strunk (who is also a member of the CAW Steering Committee), to build a college-going culture in Klamath County. And,

Some of the planned outreach efforts from a proposed admissions office include presentations to Bonanza, Chiloquin and Lost River high schools in early November for Oregon College Application Week.


College Application Week is...

We learn so much from watching what you do! One of our favorite finds so far this year comes from Hermiston High School. They've put together a list of what College Application Week is - and isn't. Check it out!


Scheduling your CAW week

One of the things I love most about College Application Week is that it's intended to be customizable to each school, site, or community. No two CAW events look exactly the same because no two schools, sites, or communities are exactly the same. But that doesn't mean folks can't learn from each other, swap ideas, and implement successful elements of other sites' good work.

A few days ago, I posted Taft's schedule of events for their CAW week. Today, I'd like to share what Parkrose High School will be doing.


Governor proclaims November Oregon College Application Month, with 2nd Annual College Application Week starting November 4

The Oregon University System (OUS) announced today that Governor Kitzhaber has proclaimed that November is Oregon College Application Month. High school seniors and GED candidates at thirty-two high schools and community based organizations throughout the state will actively heed the Governor’s call to apply to college by participating in Oregon’s College Application Week, November 4-8 and November 11-15.


Tips for getting started

This time of year, there aren't many people busier than those who work in schools. We know that - and we know that most of our site coordinators are also full-time faculty or staff members in schools and community based organizations. Our goal is to make the planning of your College Application Week event as streamlined as possible so you have the time and energy to commit to the students you serve on a daily basis.
