Spring Hill College will host two College Exposure Day 2016 events on November 9 and 18, 2016 for students from Vigor and Blount High Schools. UPDATE: The November 18 College Exposure Day has been postponed. Additional information will be distributed when available.
College Exposure Day 2016 events are an extension of the Foley Center’s tutoring program. Spring Hill College undergraduate students engage with high school students on a weekly basis to mentor and offer assistance in areas of study. Approximately 20 students who are identified as educationally underserved at each school take part in the tutoring sessions and are invited to campus to participate in the daylong program.
The Foley Center tutors, along with the Men of Color Council Legacy Chapter members and the college admissions team, will welcome students on campus at 8:45 a.m. to begin a day of exploring the college experience through classroom visits, sports engagement and personal interaction with professors, students, coaches and other college faculty and staff. Erik Goldschmidt, PhD, director of the Foley Center described the purpose of the day to provide students with an opportunity to envision themselves in a college setting. “We want to give these students an authentic, relevant, engaging and learning experience in classes and conversations to bridge the divide between where they are and where they can be.”
