The COMM-Unity 101 Classroom Visit Program seeks to provide 6th-8th grade students the opportunity to engage in a 30-minute college readiness presentation followed by a student panel.  The unique aspect of this program is that each presentation is delivered by a team of CI students as their final project for their Communication 101 course.  This means that each presentation is unique and delivered by a different group of CI students. Only eight presentations are hosted per semester, so register today!

CI Rep Visit Schedule Breakdown

Arrival – CI representatives will arrive to your classroom and set up their laptop and projector and provide each participating student with college readiness resources and material encased in a CI folder.

Workshops:
K-5th Grade: Students engage in an interactive college readiness workshop focused on goal setting and preparing for a bright future.  The workshop is entitled ‘Your Path to College’ and is hosted by your CI representative.

6th-8th Grade: Students are engaged in an interactive college readiness workshop focused on the public and private benefits of obtaining a higher education, the college entrance requirements and financial aid. The workshop is entitled ‘Welcome to iCollege’ and is hosted by your CI representative.

Departure – Students will be allowed to ask questions until the end of the time allotted. The CI representative will depart your classroom after each child has had the opportunity to ask as many questions as permitted. Our CI representatives are committed to educating each child on how to prepare for college.

Assessment Type

Students will be asked to take a short pre- and post-assessment in an effort to learn what students gain from their workshop.

Teachers and other school staff will be asked to take a short satisfaction survey on the communication with CI staff during the planning of their visit and on the satisfaction levels of their visit.
