College BINGO!
(Grades 1 - 3)

This fun, interactive presentation was designed specifically for a younger audience, typically grades 1-3. Students are each given a BINGO card to mark as the presenter moves through the game highlighting different aspects of college appropriate for this age group. Students win prizes and the classroom receives a plush college bear mascot.

Designed with 4th, 5th and 6th grade students in mind, this interactive and fun program introduces all things college - from exploring college campuses and programs of study to preparing for college at a young age. Interesting, relevant college facts help excite students to start planning now for their future.

While college may seem like decades away to most young children, the time to begin thinking about the road that leads to college is now. Future goals, college knowledge, and a "pick-a-prop" activity are all parts of this interactive session.

Personalities and Possibilities
