Recaps of 2013 College Campus Tour

CASL Associate Board's second annual University Campus Tour was a huge success!  A group of 14 students from the Chinatown area were paired with 14 volunteer mentors, led by organizers from the Associate Board and WIA Youth/CASL staff members Andrew and Ashley. The students are predominantly first generation Asian Americans and many are the first in their family to apply for college.

Students and volunteers attended a Northwestern University information session and guided campus tour in the morning. After lunch at Loyola University, a Loyola student volunteer led a tour of the Loyola. The event ended with a round table discussion amongst students and mentors.  

We are grateful for another strong volunteer participation in this event: each volunteer dedicated 8+ hours on a Saturday. Most importantly, as mentors they provided rich and diverse perspectives on their college experiences and professional careers.  Many volunteers and students expressed an interest in a follow-up event, such as an application review and ACT tutoring.

A special thank you goes to AB member Joe Jerr for helping organize the event and Loyola students Ben Beltran and Kevin Bautista for their campus tour.

Thank you again from CASL and the Associate Board - this event was made possible only with the contribution of all the volunteers!
