College advisers get a taste of TXWES during an on-campus visit
On Thursday, July 22, members of the TCU College Advising Corps (CAC) swung by Texas Wesleyan to get an in-person look at what makes our campus Smaller. Smarter. The Corps helps low-income, first-generation and underrepresented students find their way to a college that will serve them well and help them with planning for life after high school.
“I always tell students that I am here to help them get from point A to point B,” said Victoria Post, a CAC adviser working at Lamar High School in Fort Worth. Ten Lamar graduates are starting at TXWES this fall.
“What I really love about working with Texas Wesleyan is that my admission counselor would come to campus (virtually during the pandemic) and help host an on-the-spot admission decision day and give acceptances to students who applied, and some students even won scholarship money,” said Post.
“Being a neighboring high school to Texas Wesleyan this past year has been such a benefit to our students,” said Olivia Cartwright, CAC adviser at Polytechnic High School. “Texas Wesleyan's generosity through scholarships and grant opportunities has allowed our students to thrive in their community and obtain higher education. Many of our students will be attending Texas Wesleyan in the fall as freshmen Rams.”
Polytechnic High School, along with Texas Wesleyan, is also a proud partner of the Tarrant To & Through Partnership, which provides more college and career resources to Tarrant County high school students and their families. Texas Wesleyan will be welcoming more than 100 T3 Scholars to campus this fall.
