College Information Day
In a collaborative effort with Cal State East Bay, Peralta Colleges, Holy Names University, University of California, Berkeley, St. Mary’s College of California, and the Oakland Unified School District, the East Bay Consortium holds an annual College Day at UC Berkeley. College day aims to provide middle and high school students and parents the opportunity to explore the infinite higher education options that lay ahead of them.
Over 60 representatives from colleges and universities throughout the United States attend and offer prospective students a glimpse into their college. In addition, students and parents have the opportunity to attend several workshops in both English and Spanish. Workshop topics include: “Admissions Information”, “Financial Aid”, “Transfer: Making It Happen” (TMIH), “Keeping College as a Goal”, “College: Making It Happen”, “Who Do You Want To Be?”, “Completing the UC and CSU Application”, “Writing the UC Personal Insight Questions”, “Independent College Information and Required College Admissions Tests”. These events are free of charge and open to all middle and high school students.
The East Bay Consortium’s College Day is always held in the beginning of October, so check our events calendar and your school for the specific date.
