Hello!

We hope that you are able to rest, recharge and reflect over spring break this week or next. While there is a lot going on in the world, at school, home and everywhere else, focusing on your own health is a top priority. Get outdoors if you can, take a break from screens, practice a 10 minute meditation, read, or get some physical activity. DCAN has compiled a list of links and resources, here's one meditation video that looks very calming!

Ready to announce your post-secondary decision on 4/28? We can't wait to celebrate with you! Make sure you submit your decision here ASAP so we can get some swag mailed to your home - see below for details!

NEW: DCAN'S SENIOR ADMITTED DAYS
Join Detroit College Access Network (DCAN), Detroit College Ambassadors, and Detroit Promise for the 3rd Annual Senior Admitted Days.

Senior Admitted Days are meant for graduating seniors who have been admitted into any of the following colleges:

  • Grand Valley State University
  • Oakland University
  • Wayne State University
  • Henry Ford College
  • Schoolcraft College

Each college will walk you through the next steps to complete for enrollment so you can show up worry free on campus in the Fall of 2021.

Have you been accepted into college but not the ones listed above? That's okay! You can still join for the kickoff and closing celebration.

NEW: MOTIVATION WITH MARKETEA
“Although times seem chaotic and stressful right now, take note that you are making so much progress! Amidst your busy days, one moment you will look up and realize that you have gone through so much, overcame so much and grown so very much. Give yourself props for always striving forward and be proud of that! I am proud of you!”
