Ohlone College Encourages Latino High School Students to Attend College

Fremont, CA—Transitioning from high school to college can be an overwhelming experience for many students. Ohlone College is holding their 5th Annual Raza Day for Latino and Latina high school seniors to facilitate a smooth transition to attending Ohlone College. The event is designed to motivate students to take advantage of the educational opportunities available at Ohlone, explaining the benefits of taking college classes and providing direction in how to register and how to pay for college.

The free event features informative workshops, highlighting the importance of early registration for community colleges due to cuts in course offerings, break out groups for males and females to discuss gender perspectives on education, information about Ohlone College programs, careers and services, testimonials from current and past students, as well as entertainment by Aztec dancers. Breakfast and lunch are included, and transportation is provided from Bridgepoint, Kennedy, and Washington High Schools.
