Montana Western’s Campus Corps, Financial Aid Office and Office of Admissions are putting on this year’s events with assistance from the Ruby Valley TRiO Upward Bound program. “Programs like KnowHow2Go have been a long time coming,” said Montana Western Campus Corps Team Leader Jon Stephani. “A program like this serves as a road map for students who wish to pursue higher education in the future.” KnowHow2Go is a national public service campaign sponsored by the American Council on Education, the Lumina Foundation for Education and the Ad Council. It is intended to help students make their educational goals achievable. College Goal Sunday will take place on Sunday, Jan 31, 2010 in the Swysgood Technology Center. The day’s events will start at noon with a pizza party and run until 4 p.m. The events on Monday night through Wednesday night will begin at 4 p.m. These events will focus on preparing students for college with assistance filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). A $500 scholarship will be available through a drawing for students who complete the FASFA. Montana Western staff will also be available to help prospective college students write a college entrance essay and learn about how to get involved in campus and community life. Refreshments, prizes and give-aways will be provided throughout the workshops and programs. These events will also be held in the Swysgood Technology Center.
