The College Positive Online Learning Module was part of an effort to engage middle school students to consider college as a viable opportunity during the pandemic. Our goal is to give youth an idea of what college is like as well as demonstrate to them how college is an important investment and can be made affordable. The module consists of a video of the UMass Dartmouth campus and some of our college students as well as a recorded Zoom panel of UMass Dartmouth students answering questions from 7th graders who attended a live Zoom event.
- Students will receive a college positive message
- Students will learn ways to make college affordable and accessible
