This fall, Minds Matter students embarked on the first three college visits for the 2016-17 year!
Sponsored by BlackRock Gives, Minds Matter juniors and seniors were able to interact with current students on the Lafayette, Vassar and Manhattanville campuses. These visits broaden student perspectives and give them a more tangible look at the college experience. These visits also allow students to demonstrate their interests and help the admission office evaluate the student as more than simply the sum of their transcripts and test scores.
“The college trip was really helpful in terms of exploring different campus environments. It was a taste of what college life might actually look like and it makes students think of where they might belong.”– Brandon, Class of 2018
