St. Andrews Featured 2011 Opportunity Guide
St. Andrews Presbyterian College has been recognized in the Center for Student Opportunity's 2011 College Access & Opportunity Guide.
It is a comprehensive college guidebook designed to help low-income, first-generation college-bound students make their college dreams a reality.
"We want to show students and their supporters that the opportunity for college is there," said Matt Rubinoff, executive director of Center for Student Opportunity. "The 2011 College Access & Opportunity Guide is a special resource that provides guidance through the college process and delivers important information on college programs aimed to serve low-income, first-generation college students."
This marks the third consecutive year that St. Andrews has been included in the annual guide.
"St. Andrews is committed to offering programs and services that can help all our students reach their full potential," said Cynthia Robinson, vice president for enrollment management at St. Andrews. "We continue to implement programs like our Cornerstone enrichment program and services like our Center for Academic Success that provide additional resources for our students to utilize for both academic and social success.
"We are honored that the 2011 College Access & Opportunity Guide has once again recognized these efforts. This is the kind of information families and prospective students need to have available when considering which college is right for them."
The 2011 College Access & Opportunity Guide features 284 colleges and universities for their outreach efforts, financial aid opportunities and student support services. There are also articles and advice from college students and other experts regarding the college search and selection process.
St. Andrews Presbyterian College in Laurinburg was established Aug. 29, 1958, through the merger of Presbyterian Junior College and Flora Macdonald College.
In addition to classes on the main campus, adult learners also choose the Center for Adult and Professional Studies opportunities through St. Andrews @ Sandhills and St. Andrews ONLINE.
