College Possible programming aims to best prepare students for college admission and success. An important part of that equation is creating a social support system.
To support their younger peers, more than 35 college students in College Possible led panels at partner high schools throughout the Omaha metro area.
Students from universities, such as University of Nebraska – Lincoln, Bellevue University and University of Nebraska Omaha, visited 10 Omaha area partner high schools this month to share their experience at a four-year university. They discussed living on campus, going to class, managing priorities, available resources and College Possible.
“I really enjoyed hearing about how they think College Possible is still very helpful during college, and how they learned to manage their time because that is going to be harder next year,” said Tha Blay Moo, a senior at Omaha Benson High School Magnet.
Many of the panelists returned to the high school where they graduated, including the four panelists at Benson Sha Htoo, Sushma Rai, Michah Dunwoody and Meri Davis.
Other partner high schools are Omaha North High Magnet School, Omaha Northwest High Magnet School, Omaha South High Magnet School, Bellevue East High School, Millard South High School, Ralston High School, Westside High School, Papillion – La Vista High School and Papillion – La Vista South High School.
