Alcanza - Opportunities Through Higher Education

We are pleased to announce that George Mason University will be hosting the 14th Annual Alcanza College Fair! Mason hosts Alcanza as part of our effort to inform the Latino high school student population in the Washington, DC metropolitan area about their higher educational opportunities and to encourage them to pursue their education beyond high school. The day was created to get students motivated and excited about their post-secondary plans. Over 100 colleges from all over the nation attend Alcanza with about 1,500 high school students from all over the Washington DC metropolitan area. The students in attendance hear from a keynote speaker and college student panel, as well as have the opportunity to participate in the college fair. To end the day, we provide lunch to all the students in attendance. The day is truly an opportunity for these students to understand the college process and begin to resolve where they would like to spend their college years. We look forward to your participation!
