Concho Valley College Night Scheduled Oct. 21 on ASU Campus
Angelo State University will host Concho Valley College Night Monday, Oct. 21, to give students from the 18 regional high schools an opportunity to visit with representatives from colleges and universities from throughout the state.
Representatives from more than 50 Texas colleges and universities will be available to provide information and to answer specific questions from high school students and their parents. The program is scheduled 7-8:30 p.m. in the Davidson Conference Center in the Houston Harte University Center at 1910 Rosemont on the ASU campus.
Additionally, representatives from various branches of the U.S. military will be present to provide information on military careers and college scholarship programs that are available to those with military service.
Purpose of the college night is to give Concho Valley area high school sophomores, juniors and seniors an opportunity to visit with the representatives from the various schools regarding college admission, scholarships, etc. This one-stop shopping allows students and their parents to contact a maximum of Texas institutions of higher learning at a minimum of time and effort. The session also provides a way for students to narrow their collegiate options or to explore other educational possibilities.
In addition to the specific information about colleges, the ASU Financial Aid Office will hold a general financial aid information workshop session during the evening.
Students interested in attending the Concho Valley College Night may contact the ASU Office of Admissions at 942-2041, Ext. 230, or their high school counselors for more information.
Several area high schools are participating in this year's College Night in more ways than just sending their students. The San Angelo Independent School District Administration and Central High, Lakeview, Grape Creek, Wall, Water Valley and Eldorado High Schools have donated food items and other gifts for "care packages" to be given to visiting college representatives as a show of Concho Valley hospitality. Additionally, counselors and students from those area high schools will be assisting with the evening's activities.
