Visit Claremont McKenna College



A warm hello from Claremont McKenna College! We are writing today with information about our 2018 Fall Preview Fly-In Program. Preview is designed for first-generation college students and students from diverse backgrounds who are traditionally underrepresented in higher education. Our program aims to provide high school seniors with an inside look into the life of a CMCer! All transportation costs, housing accommodations, and meals during the program will be covered by CMC.

The Preview application will be available May 21 through August 18, 2018. Students can apply at connect.cmc.edu/preview. To be considered for the program, students must complete an application including 6 short response essays and submit a high school transcript and a list of their fall term courses. All of this can be submitted in the application. Applicants and their counselors will be notified of our final selection by Tuesday, August 28. 2018. During the program students will have the opportunity to attend classes, explore our eleven research institutes, attend a presentation at the Athenaeum, connect with current students and professors, and enjoy the perks of the Southern California sun!

CMC is a comprehensive applied liberal arts college. We foster a close-knit, collaborative, diverse community dedicated to the free exchange of ideas and inspired by our mission to prepare students for thoughtful and responsible leadership in the private, public, and social sectors. CMC ranks among the nation's premier liberal arts colleges, enrolling over 1300 students who are eager to engage in intellectually stimulating discussion to develop practical solutions to evolving challenges. With a need-blind policy where students are admitted without regard to their family's financial resources, and our pledge to meet 100% of demonstrated financial need, CMC is committed to ensuring diversity in its student body.

UC San Diego NanoEngineering Open House




This event, which is geared toward high school and transfer students, will be a good opportunity for students (along with their parents and any interested teachers or counselors) to learn about the NanoEngineering and Chemical Engineering majors that we offer.  With research projects and experiment demonstrations, faculty, advisors, alumni, and student organizations on hand, we hope to offer a great introduction not only to the University but also to the exciting things that await students in the industry. 

Our open house will welcome high school students of all grades, though we hope juniors and seniors might visit and allow us to assist with their college and career path questions.  For your convenience, I have attached a copy of our open house flyer with more information.  

We hope you would be willing to forward this information to any student or clubs at Sweetwater High School that may be interested in Chemical Engineering or NanoEngineering degrees, or the field in general.

Please feel free to contact me if you should have any questions, or if we can provide any further information.
