Kickoff to College Event

Every year the Pathway to the Baccalaureate Program at NOVA has a Kick Off to College event for the new cohort of students held at George Mason University. This year the event is being held on Saturday, February 27, 2016. Last year there was a Resource Fair in the lobby of Dewberry Hall that was very popular, and College Steps returning this year to again host a table representing College Steps. Like last year, there will be 2 sessions for participants, a morning session and an afternoon session.  There are usually about 800 attendees per session.  The morning Resource Fair will open at 9:30 and end at 12:30.  The afternoon Resource Fair will open at 1:30 and end at 4:30.
