Teachers and educators: College GO! kick-off week is THIS WEEK! If you’re still looking for resources and activities to make your College GO! a success, keep reading.
What is College GO!?
College GO! is one of Learn More Indiana’s student success campaigns. The campaign is dedicated to helping students find the right postsecondary option that fits their personality, goals and interests. The campaign gives students options to explore their interests, research schools, visit campuses, and apply for college.
When is College GO!?
The official kick-off is the last full week of September, September 23 – 27, 2019, but the campaign takes place from August through November. Although these are the official dates, you can incorporate College GO! activities and events whenever they fit into your calendar!
