CONNECT event brings high school students, families to campus

Saturday’s CONNECT event brought more than 75 high school seniors and their families  to campus for a series of activities focused on recruiting and registration.

This marked the third year in a row for the event, which is a partnership between the Office of Admission and the college’s Academic Advisors / Advising Center. CONNECT is designed to convert graduating high school seniors into registered Cincinnati State students, while giving them peace of mind by answering questions and introducing them to the College so they can relax and enjoy the summer.

Among the highlights of the event:

  • Interim President Dr. Posey was on hand to welcome guests

Interim Provost Robbin Hoopes and FYE Department Chair Julie McLaughlin delivered an address entitled “How to Succeed in College.”

  • Wesley Williams gave a thorough overview of Financial Aid
  • Sharon Davis let everyone know about the variety of support services available to students.
  • Dr. Andrea Leslie introduced three honors students, who described the benefits of the Honors Program and their personal experiences in it.

At least six other students volunteered their time to give campus tours and help serve the pizza lunch.

  • Post-lunch breakout sessions found the new Cincinnati State freshmen hitting computer labs to register and practice using Surge Mail while parents attended a session with Sharon Davis on helping students succeed.

Special thanks go out to the 28 faculty and staff volunteers who came out to support the event and, of course, to the employees of the Enrollment and Student Development team.

Kroger Rewards Program can help Cincinnati State Foundation

Are you enrolled in the Kroger Community Rewards program?  Last year, the Cincinnati State Foundation was provided $856.70 through the program.

The program automatically funnels donations to causes of the card-holder’s choice with every purchase using the Kroger Plus Card.
