Creating a College Going Culture

PIQE Orange County, The Capistrano Unified School District, and California State Polytechnic University collaborated on Saturday, April 18 to offer families an informative and empowering experience. Parents participated in a college requirements workshop then listened to a panel discussion about first generation college experiences featuring four State University Alumni. Simultaneously, the students participated in STEM activities run by Cal Poly Pomona students from the College of Science. Finally, to cap off the day's events, everyone was in for a special treat; a student-led tour of the campus!
