|College Ready: News from Our Success Team
After a very productive CollegeTracks Summer Institute, the Success team has turned its efforts toward helping 215 first-year students make the transition to college life.
In the 2018-2019 school year, the Success program will serve more than 550 college students.
Coaches are currently checking in with returning students to ensure they stay on track to meet their academic goals and secure ongoing financial aid. The start of the school year is always an exciting but busy time, with many of the coaches traveling to connect with students living away from home for the first time to make sure they are settled.
This year, CollegeTracks students will be represented at Montgomery College, in-state schools such as UMD-Baltimore, UMD-College Park, Goucher a
nd Johns Hopkins. Farther afield, incoming students will study at the University of Miami, Muhlenberg College, Boston University, Occidental College, Southern Vermont University and Villanova University.
New this year: CollegeTracks will build its presence at the Germantown campus of Montgomery College, where Coach Nneka Onyilofor (depicted in photo above with Success Scholars enrolled at MC-Germantown) will oversee a program to assist students graduating from our Watkins Mill Access program.
