Students looking to attend San Diego Mesa College can get early access to the campus and learn about the school’s programs and amenities during the annual Jumpstart on Feb. 25 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

 

“It is such a great opportunity for students who are interested in Mesa because when they come to our campus they get a feel of what our community has to offer through academic support and student services support,” said Victoria Miller, Dean of Student Affairs. “There’s also the encouragement that we’re here as a community to really help provide opportunities for academic success during their journey here at Mesa.”

 

During the day’s festivities, students will “get a feel for a day in the life of a Mesa student” through workshops that highlight the campus’ academic and student support resources, according to Miller.

 

Some of those workshops will provide information about financial aid and the school’s prestigious Honors Program. There will also be tables set up where students will be able to interact with current Peer Navigators, Student Ambassadors and the Associated Students, and students from the dance department will be performing.

 

One of the highlights of Jumpstart is that students will have their names entered in the opportunity drawing to win one of four $250 scholarships to be applied toward enrollment fees during their first semester at Mesa College. Recipients have to be graduating high school seniors or transferring Continuing Education students to enter, and be present during the drawing of names to win.

 

Last year, more than 300 prospective students attended Jumpstart, during which there were demonstrations of robotics and a volcano from the science department. Those planning to attend this year’s event are encouraged to register for free online.
