One-hundred Logan County high school students who may be the first in their families to attend college made a visit to Wright State University for a college readiness program last Friday.
Organized by the WSU Department of English Language and Literatures in collaboration with the Logan County High School Higher Education Alignment Team, College Readiness Day introduced these future college students to the level and type of writing expected of college students.
Wright State students shared multimedia presentations from their English composition courses and discussed their views of college including the advantages provided by Wright State’s First Year Experience peer-mentoring program.
“We want high school students to see how exciting research writing can be by viewing the multimedia projects of our students,” said Nancy Mack, Ph.D., professor of English.
This innovative transition-to-college program is funded in part by a Race to the Top Grant in conjunction with the College of Liberal Arts and the Department of English Language and Literatures.
