This past weekend, CHAH high schoolers attended Camp College, a 3-day weekend where the kids lived in the residence halls from August 7-9 at SUNY - New Delhi. They attended lectures by college professors and participated in workshops about admissions and financial aid.
11th grader Brittany Quezada said that "Camp college showed me how to get along with people from different cultures. It showed me how to get out of my comfort zone."
Her friend, Jishanny Quintana, added that Camp College taught her that in college, "passion and motivation are the keys to success and happiness."
The students learned about interviewing for colleges and attended a workshop on personal statement writing techniques.
It was a fun, informative, and entertaining weekend. Soon, college will be more than a long weekend...it will be their life!
