The mission of Educational Talent Search is to help students successfully complete middle and high school, then go on to pursue their postsecondary education at an institution of their choice. ETS works to help students overcome any potential barriers that would keep them from attending college or a technical school.
On June 5th , ETS high school students are set to take a campus tour of the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville Campus. The UA recruitment office will host a presentation to inform the students on admission requirements and cost of attendance. Students will be informed of the various majors the university offers. After the presentation, the students attend a guided walking tour of the campus. Along with seeing classrooms and various department buildings, the students will get to see the various campus housing options.
Middle school ETS students will also have an opportunity to tour a local college campus. Students are set to tour Northeastern State University on June 14th, in Tahlequah, Okla. Students will learn the requirements to attend Northeastern and will have the opportunity to ask questions from campus officials and go on a guided tour. After lunch, the students will travel to the Cherokee Nation Heritage Center. There, the students will learn about the Cherokee Nation’s history and culture, then take a tour of Diligwa, a replica of a Cherokee village from 1710.
