This summer, Marian University is participating in Project Stepping Stones of Indiana, a one-week program held each summer to help Hispanic high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors learn about and prepare for college.
The students spent Thursday, June 20 and Friday, June 21, on the campus of Marian University. While on campus, they participated in a career fair, mock interviews, and also got the chance to spend some time in the Nina Mason Pulliam EcoLab.
“The students in this program get the chance to have a college experience, learn about Marian University’s programs, and learn how to apply to college,” said Sr. Norma Rocklage, OSF ’60. “They leave here with a desire to go to college.”
The admitted students will also travel to and stay overnight at the campuses of Indiana University Purdue University-Indianapolis, Indiana State University, Purdue University, and Ball State University.
Students also have the opportunity to receive Project Stepping Stones of Indiana $1,000 scholarships. These funds, donated by sponsors and the Indiana Latino Scholarship Fund, are to recognize outstanding program participation and to encourage college enrollment.
