CSUS to Host College Awareness Day

California State University, Sacramento will host a college preparation program designed especially for 6th- through 9th-grade students and their parents from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Feb. 20 in the University Union.

College Awareness Day will be conducted along with the Los Rios Community Colleges, the University of California, Davis and the University of the Pacific.

It will include a showing of the video College: Making it Happen, which offers practical tips on preparing academically and financially for higher education. Following the video, representatives from each university and college will conduct workshops, provide written materials and be available to answer questions. The video and the rest of the program will be presented in both English and Spanish.

The program is one of a number of events scheduled throughout the state during February, which has been designated College Awareness Month by the California State Legislature and the Governor's Office. The events are meant to highlight the importance of early planning and family involvement in higher education.
