Attendees are asked to RSVP, and will have an opportunity to learn more about Mesa College and the San Diego Promise FREE Tuition Program. Jumpstart will include campus tours, workshops, resource fair, demonstrations, and presentations to showcase the diversity and depth of the programs and services that Mesa College offers.


“This is a great event for potential incoming Mesa students because when they come to our campus, they get a feel of what our community has to offer through academic and student services support, such as access to free tuition,” said Victoria Miller, Dean of Student Affairs. “We have current students, staff and faculty on hand to provide encouragement that they will succeed in their journey here at Mesa.”


During the 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, including financial aid and the Honors Program. Students will be able to interact with Peer Navigators, Student Ambassadors and the Associated Students.  Entertainment will be provided by Mesa College’s World Music, Dance and Jazz Quartet. FREE lunch will be provided (while supplies last).

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.
