College Horizons workshop comes to Stanford campus June 23-27

Close to 100 students will attend a College Horizons summer workshop held on the Stanford campus June 23-27.

A national nonprofit organization, College Horizons conducts pre-college workshops for talented Native American, Alaskan Natives and Native Hawaiian high school students (current sophomores and juniors).

With a team of experienced college guidance counselors and admission officers, students will spend five days in an intensive "crash course" to prepare for the college admission and financial aid process. In recent years, these workshops have been hosted on the campuses of Harvard University, Rice University, University of Puget Sound and Oberlin College.

The workshop is administered by Whitney Laughlin, executive director of College Horizons. As the host institution, Stanford plays no role in the College Horizons application or selection process. For an application and more information about the program, visit the web at http://www.collegehorizons.org or send an e-mail to collegehorizons@aol.com.
