Getting ‘Kids2College'

June, 2009

Nearly 30 sixth-graders from the Lincoln, NH, Lin-Wood Public School got an early taste of college life when they visited PSU as part of the Kids2College program in April.

Sponsored by the Sallie Mae Fund, a student loan program, Kids2College highlights the value and accessibility of a college education.

Gail Carr, director of Continuing Education at PSU’s Frost School, was excited to bring this program to the University for the first time. “If one student who thought he couldn’t go to college now knows he can, it’s worth it,” she says.

Lin-Wood teacher Kristie Morris says her students enjoyed visiting campus and learning about the possibilities of higher education. “We’re thankful and happy PSU coordinated with us on this program; it’s invaluable for the kids’ future.”
