Chicago Scholars Onsite College Day Opens Doors for Students

Chicago Scholars Onsite College and Leadership Forum was held at Navy Pier on Tuesday, October 25. Over 700 students from across Chicago participated. The Onsite Day gave all 46 of Loyola's senior Chicago Scholars, who are academically ambitious, first-generation-to-college students from under-resourced communities, the opportunity to interview with multiple colleges and universities in one day. In total, these 46 students participated in 193 interviews with a wide variety of universities who have been identified for their commitment to supporting Chicago Scholars financially, academically, and socially through their college graduation.
"At Loyola Academy, we work with our first-gen to college students to help them navigate the college application process, understand academic and financial fit, access scholarship opportunities, and have the opportunity to learn about financing their university experience," says College Counselor Dr. Gabrielle Feldman. "The Chicago Scholars Program is a great match for their talents and goals."

"The Chicago Scholar Program is so important to our students because they have the opportunity to be admitted to colleges and receive scholarships early in their senior year, showing them how their hard work pays off," adds College Counseling Department Chair Mr. Mark Pocaro. "Additionally, selective colleges use the interviews to gain a better understanding of the lives of or students when reviewing them for full cost attendance scholarships."

While some colleges admitted students on the spot on Tuesday, others will use notes collected about each candidate during the interview to make an admission decision in the spring. Institutions present ranged from those nearby to those on the East and West Coast.
