Kaleidoscope of Colleges and Cultures a Huge Success!

April 28th, 2008

Last Friday and Saturday high school students from all four corners of Oregon converged on campus for a program called Kaleidoscope of Colleges and Cultures (KCC). The program is aimed primarily at underrepresented minorities and first generation students.

Students got to hear an uplifting keynote address by Javier Cervantes, attend Roadmap to College sessions, learn about exciting academic opportunities, meet faculty members from the OSU campus, see a talent show starring OSU and Corvallis area performance groups (DIME Squad, Allison Davis-White Eyes, Omega Delta Phi, Gamma Alpha Omega and Rumbanana) and take tours of the campus and housing.

Counselors were able to sit in on a session with Director of Admissions, Michele Sandlin. The topics centered on OSU’s Holistic Admissions policy and the new Bridge to Success Program.

Here’s a little video montage I put together of some of the activities:

Thanks to all the participants and volunteers that made KCC a wonderful event!
