Release Date:  Tuesday, October 15, 2013

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Governor Earl Ray Tomblin has designated this week as “College Application and Exploration Week” in an effort to help students prepare for college. More than 150 schools across the state will participate by hosting a variety of hands-on college planning activities including college application workshops, panel discussions with current college students, and college scavenger hunts and trivia contests. 

“College Application and Exploration Week is an innovative approach to engaging students in preparing for education and training beyond high school” Governor Tomblin said. “Choosing a college is a monumental decision in an individual’s life, and it is important that we help our students make informed choices that are aligned with their goals, interests, and needs. Many of our students will be the first in their family to go to college. College Application and Exploration Week is a chance for us to create a fun and welcoming environment to allow those students — and their parents — to seek help in navigating the admissions and enrollment process.”
