San Diego, CA ---- On Saturday, February 25th, San Diego Mesa College will be holding its annual “Jumpstart”, a free event for
students interested in attending Mesa College where they can visit the campus and
learn about the school’s programs and services.
“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 at Mesa.”
During the day’s festivities, students and their families 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, including financial aid and the Honors Program. Students
will be able to interact with Peer Navigators, Student Ambassadors and the Associated
Students. Radio station Z90 will be on hand to play music, and students from the dance
department will perform.
Students attending Jumpstart 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. For more information about Jumpstart, contact Ashanti Hands at firstname.lastname@example.org or (619) 388-2678.
