On Saturday September 24, 2016, All Peoples Community and FamilySource Center took a total of 32 students, 7 parents and 3 staff on a college field trip to visit two universities: University of California, Riverside and California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.  Students and parents had an opportunity to learn about the campus history, admission requirements, and financial aid. Parents also had an opportunity to get answers to questions such as:

  • What is the average class size and the student-to-faculty ratio? Are most classes taught by professors or by teaching assistants?
  • What is the campus meal plan like? How is the food? What are the options?
  • What is the makeup of the current freshman class? Is the campus fairly diverse?
  • What’s the social scene like? What kinds of activities are available?
  • Is there plenty of dorm space or is there a housing crunch?
  • How many students are commuters and how many are campus residents?

“One of the most compelling and important reasons for taking the students and parents on this tour was so that they could see the college firsthand – the classrooms, dorms, and library that the students would be living in for the next four years in the event that they were to commit to these universities,” says Deisy Huerta, Youth Director at All Peoples Community Center. “Students and parents had an opportunity to see the buildings inside and out, including classrooms, dorms, dining halls, gyms, and libraries.

One of the things that parents and students liked the most about these universities was the fact that they were close enough to home where if students need something, the parents were only 40 minutes away, but the distance was also long enough to where students would have an opportunity to dorm and get a full college experience.”
