Oakland Middle School Students Visit CSU, Chico to Say ‘Thanks’ for Computer Donation
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Outreach Coordinator MESA
On Monday, March 3, 17 sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade students from James Madison Middle School will visit the CSU, Chico campus. They are coming to express their thanks and to see a college campus up close. Their counselor, Arturo Mola, wants students from the school, who are predominantly African-American and Hispanic, to get a taste of what being on a campus is like and to meet college students who are realizing their goal of a college education.
While on campus, students will meet with Office of Admissions staff and play the Admissions Jeopardy Game, visit the Cross-Cultural Leadership Center and observe a Mechatronics Human-Powered Vehicle demonstration, among other activities.
“It is our hope to open the doors to these young people and to introduce the College of Engineering to them with the intent on having them eventually enroll at CSU, Chico,” said Dean Derucher. “This is a fine middle school with good students.”
