  1. Student Trip to Columbus: Thursday, Oct. 21

    Submitted by Dee Dee Snyder,

    The date is set for Program Excel’s Autumn 2021 Columbus Campus Trip. Approximately 30 new and returning students will visit the Columbus campus to engage with academic resources in CFAES and the greater Columbus campus. 

    The trip is designed to help students begin to envision their transition to a 4-year degree. We hope this experience will help foster in students the feeling that they can fit in on the Columbus campus. 
    Promotions will go out to students late summer/early fall. Please encourage Program Excel students to participate in this trip.
