Learn While Giving Back
Think back to when you were applying to college.
Do you remember the process of planning required to select and apply to colleges? Do you remember the time it took to compose different essays for the different schools you wanted to apply to? This is a stressful time for many of us, especially those of us who do not have family members to help us with the process.
The Honors College is working with the Early Identification Program (EIP), a college preparatory program for first generation, college bound middle and high school students to help provide support as students prepare to apply to college.
Students who participate in HNRS 261 Community Connection Practicum: College Application Coaches help students find resources to help them with their college applications, help with college application essays, and will send reminder emails to make sure all the EIP students apply to Mason's Honors College.
Participating in College Application Coaches involves a normal classroom experience, in addition to working with students remotely on preparing their college applications.
