A Scholars Program Information Night is scheduled for Tuesday, January 31, 2017. The event will take place from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Costner-Balentine Student Center Ballroom on the Poteau campus of CASC.
CASC Vice President of Enrollment Management Jennifer Humphreys stated, “Students are not required to attend this event, but for high school seniors seeking information or needing help with the application, this is a great opportunity. You will learn about the Scholars Program scholarship, as well as talk to Scholars Program recipients about their experience at Carl Albert.” She continued, “Parents are certainly invited to attend the Information Night as well as students to learn more about what we have to offer.”
The financial benefits of being in the Scholars Program are significant. Students selected to participate in the program are awarded a tuition waiver for 16 hours per semester, housing in a semi-private room, and half the meal costs for 14 meals per week in the campus cafeteria. Students are responsible for course fees plus half the meal plan cost.
Executive Director of the CASC Development Foundation Mandy Roberts stated, “The many benefits provided Scholars are hard to find elsewhere. This program provides just about everything a student could ask for the first two years of college.” She continued, “Thanks to the generosity of many individuals and businesses throughout the area as well as CASC faculty and staff, the benefits to students in the Scholars Program are substantial.”
Regarding housing at CASC’s Poteau campus, Roberts explained, “We are so proud of the dorms on campus. Our student housing provides our Scholars a great place to live.”
Humphreys shared, “This program is a great deal for students. It is highly competitive to be selected, and I believe participants’ success while at Carl Albert plus later down the road can be contributed to what the Scholars Program offers.” Humphreys stated, “The Scholars Program provides students their first experience of campus life in a wonderful setting. CASC is an awesome place to start a college career.”
