Program makes whole family
'college ready'

California State University, Sacramento will once again team up with other local colleges and universities to host a program on preparing for college. The ninth annual "College: Making it Happen!" event will be from 8:30 a.m. to noon on Saturday, March 29 in the CSUS University Union Ballroom.

The program is intended primarily for 6th through 9th grade students and their families. Because of its popularity, reservations must be made by March 3 by calling (916) 278-3837 or visiting

The program will include practical workshops on preparing academically and financially for college, and on exploring career options. Representatives from Sacramento area colleges and universities will be on hand to answer questions and provide information about their institutions.

In addition, there will be a workshop in both Spanish and Hmong that will provide an overview of admissions and financial aid.

"College: Making it Happen!" is sponsored by CSUS, Los Rios Community College District, UC Davis and the Sacramento County Office of Education. It is free and open to the public.

For more information contact the CSUS outreach office at (916) 278-7362. For media assistance contact the CSUS public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
