Concurrent Session #33 (Monday, July 21, 2014)
Advising/Counseling, 7th Year
Oklahoma GEAR UP not only provides students access to college but also focuses on student success in college through the utilization of college liaisons. A college liaison from Rose State College will provide an overview of the various events that take place throughout the year for GEAR UP students to prepare them for postsecondary success while in high school and to assist with college retention during their college freshman year. Interactive discussion will allow participants to be engaged in the presentation and attendees will leave with an understanding of the numerous programs and activities and their importance in college success.
