This spring, we took our 2017 scholarship recipients to a college campus so they could experience college first-hand! 

In April, cPort brought 25 students to Thomas College in Waterville, Maine from Augusta schools to experience college life! Students took a campus tour from a student representative, enjoyed lunch in the cafeteria, and got to ask many questions during a student Q & A panel!

Next, we took Scarborough recipients to Saint Joseph’s College of Maine in Standish. Students enjoyed a guided tour from admissions, some free time at the lakefront, and capped off the day with a delicious lunch from the farm fresh cafeteria.

In May, we brought over 30 students from Portland to Saint Joseph’s College of Maine in Standish, also! They enjoyed the tour, lake time, and a yummy lunch!

Our campus visits are a wonderful field trip experience for the students to see what college will be like when they get the chance to go! It gets them excited for the future, and we’ve heard they return to class with a renewed sense of focus on studies!
