SCU hosts more than 150 students and parents from the Greater Washington Neighborhood each year to get a taste of college life.
Each year, SCU invites more than 150 fifth grade students and parents from Washington elementary to come to campus for a full day of events. For the students the goal is to provide a small glimpse into what college life is like. Current SCU students provide tours of residence halls, the Solar Decathlon house, athletic facilities, and classroom space.
For the parents, the day is a chance to introduce them to the steps and preparation required for college. SCU staff provide tours of the library and classroom space, as well as a chance to attend sessions with admissions counselors and first-generation faculty members.
