College Possible Hits the Road

Putting students on the path to college success quite often means hitting the road with them. During the 2017-18 school year, College Possible Omaha has taken participating high school students on 16 visits to regional campuses.

“More often than not, College Possible is students’ sole resource for finding a college campus aside from Omaha-area schools,” said Sarah Swanigan, Papillion-La Vista High School senior coach.  “While those schools are great options for our students to explore, these visits give them the opportunity to branch out a bit and compare campuses and understand how far away from home they could be.”

“It is a chance to talk to current students, learn more about policies, opportunities and the campus layout. All of these things are important as they can impact a student’s grades, social life and overall well-being during their first year,” adds Gretchen Haislip, Omaha Northwest junior coach.

Visits for College Possible Omaha students this year included:

  • Augustana University
  • College of Saint Mary
  • Concordia University
  • Doane University,
  • Hastings College
  • Midland University
  • Nebraska Methodist College
  • Nebraska Wesleyan University
  • Peru State College
  • South Dakota State University
  • University of Nebraska – Kearney, Lincoln and Omaha campuses
  • University of South Dakota
  • Wayne State College
  • Meet Destiny
