Liberty Partnerships Program Hosts 2018 College Bound Kick Off

MCC's Liberty Partnerships Program (LPP) hosted their annual College Bound Kick Off on October 24th. The event was an opportunity for LPP students and their parents to learn about current trends in college admissions and financial aid, as well as ask questions of the LPP staff and presenters. The presenters this year were Victoria DiMatteo, Academic Coordinator for LPP, Marla Dinkle, RISE Coordinator at MCC, and Sean Hanlon, Admissions Counselor from Nazareth College. Each presenter discussed their role in assisting students with the college application and admissions process and provided critical information for the LPP students as well as their parents.

Liberty Partnerships Program was pleased to have student and parent representation from each of their target schools, with students in grades 7 through 12 in attendance! The College Bound Kick Off is the first event in the LPP College Knowledge workshop series for the 2018 school year. Upcoming workshops open to LPP students will focus on FAFSA assistance, the scholarship search, understanding a high school transcript, and finding your "dream" college. We look forward to another wonderful year of pre-collegiate programming with our students, and helping them navigate the world of college admissions!

The Liberty Partnerships Program is funded by a grant from the New York State Department of Education.
