Over 40 students participated in SRC's first High School Registration Day, held Saturday, April 18th at the San Ramon Campus. The event was led by SRC Student Services staff from Admissions & Records, Student Services and SRC student leaders. Graduating seniors from all San Ramon Valley Unified School Districts were invited to participate in the event, with 6 out of the 7 district high schools were represented, as well as two high schools from Pleasanton who heard about the event through the grapevine.
The student schedule included completing the on-line application, the Math and English assessments, workshops on Financial Aid and EOPS led by Rudolf Rose (FAO) and Lindsay Kong (EOPS), a WebAdvisor tutorial, icebreakers and campus tours led by current student leaders from SRC, a free lunch (yes, it still exists!) and registration for spring and summer COUN 105. Student learning outcomes were assessed using pre- and post-tests and results will be posted to the Institutional Research website for SRC Student Services shortly. Participants' retention and success will be tracked through Fall 2009 to evaluate the impact of the event.
Parents that attended were invited to participate in a parent program, which included presentations by Nicola Place on Transfer; Financial Aid by Rudolf Rose; EOPS by Lindsay Kong; SRC Student Services by Ann Uawithya; and College Student Rights & Responsibilities by Yvonne Canada. A big THANK YOU to all of the guest presenters for their excellent workshops, their flexibility and giving us their time on such a beautiful day!
