College2U Roadshow brings colleges to rural students in Central Wisconsin

In an effort to increase access to higher education, College2U Roadshow is bringing top colleges and universities from across the country to rural students in Central Wisconsin. This innovative initiative is designed to provide students with a unique opportunity to learn about various college and university programs, connect with admissions representatives, and explore their options for higher education.

The College2U Roadshow is a mobile outreach program that travels to rural areas, setting up info sessions and workshops at local schools, libraries, and community centers. During these events, students can meet with college representatives from a variety of institutions, including major universities, community colleges, and technical colleges. The program is specifically tailored to the needs of rural students, who may face challenges in accessing higher education due to geographical limitations.

At the roadshow, students can learn about various academic programs, majors, and career paths, as well as the application and financial aid process. They can also ask questions, gain insights, and receive personalized advice from college representatives. This personalized attention is crucial for rural students, who may not have the same level of access to college resources and information as their urban counterparts.

The College2U Roadshow is a valuable resource for students in Central Wisconsin, who can now explore higher education opportunities without having to travel to larger cities. By providing a forum for students to connect with colleges and universities, the program aims to increase college enrollment and graduate rates in the region. The roadshow has already made stops in several towns and cities in Central Wisconsin, including Wausau, Stevens Point, and Marshfield. The program is expected to continue its outreach efforts throughout the region, bringing education and opportunities to rural students.

By bridging the gap between rural students and higher education, the College2U Roadshow is helping to level the playing field and provide a brighter future for students in Central Wisconsin.
