The Joseph A. Unanue Latino Institute is hosting a College Prep Workshop for local high school students. The event will be taking place Feb. 2nd from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Bethany Hall and registration is still open. The workshop is designed to help high school students apply to colleges and universities.
The first part of the program is dedicated to assisting students with their FAFSA applications by bringing in experts, including from Seton Hall's own Educational Opportunity Program (EOP). Other experts are coming in to explain the financial aid process and to show those who are undocumented the New Jersey Alternative application, a state government resource to financially assist undocumented students.
There will also be a college essay writing session led by an Unanue Scholar and Latino Institute work-study alumna, Naomi Shuyama, who is currently studying for her Master's in English with a concentration in Creative Writing at Seton Hall.
Afterward a representative from one of the local community colleges will discuss alternative options to students in attaining a four-year degree. Lastly, a panel will be held with alumni discussing their own college experiences with a tour of Seton Hall's campus to finish off the day.
This workshop is proudly co-sponsored with Make the Road, an organization dedicated to fighting for documentation for those undocumented in the state. It's also co-sponsored with Adelante, the Latino student organization on campus that brings Latino culture to light.
The Institute and our co-sponsors are excited for the event and are looking forward to helping future college graduates prepare themselves for the college application process.
