SUNY Geneseo has been selected to host Camp College, a three-day college-access experience for upper-level high school students, for the next four years. The enrichment program is coordinated by the New York State Association for College Admission Counseling (NYSACAC).
For the next four summers, 150 high school students and professional mentors from across New York State will come to Geneseo for weekend college-prep workshops led by school counselors and college admissions staff mentors, SUNY Geneseo faculty lectures, and other academic and social events. Camp College is free to participants.
"Pathway programs, such as this one, allow students to experience what it's like to be on a college campus and learn more about the college admissions process," says Costas Solomou, vice president for enrollment management at SUNY Geneseo. "College access programs are critical to our mission to become the nation's first equity-minded honors college."
Students participating in Camp College will learn how to navigate the college search, admissions, and financial aid processes, as well as how to find their best fit with the help of a supportive network of counselors and mentors.
NYSACAC is the state affiliate of the National Association for College Admissions Counseling (NACAC), the only professional association composed of members from secondary schools, community-based organizations, colleges, and universities.
