On Saturday, October 20, 2012 the College of Charleston will host hundreds of multicultural students during the annual AALANA (African American, Latino, Asian, Native American) Preview Day. AALANA Preview Day is one of several popular programs for minority students to experience college life. The event is free, but registration is required. Watch a video from the event.
“This is an opportunity for high school juniors and seniors to learn how our multicultural student body thrives at the College,” says Debbie Counts, Associate Director of Admissions and Multicultural Recruitment Coordinator. Students will meet faculty, staff and currently enrolled AALANA students, learn about options for financial aid, and attend mini-workshops on academic support, leadership opportunities, student life, and wellness.

Students also have the opportunity to stay overnight on campus as part of the M.O.V.E. (Multicultural Overnight Visit Experience) program. The October 19-20 session is full, but registrations are still being accepted for two programs in November. Students are hosted by a currently enrolled minority student and stay in one of eight residence halls. They also have the opportunity to learn about pre-professional programs and experience the college community. The event is free, but registration is required.
