Greetings from the Lamar GO Center

 

     We wanted to take the time to introduce ourselves and provide a little information on what we discuss with students. There are currently two UTA students who work as mentors in the Lamar Go Center. Jayna Mistry is in her last semester of nursing school and Alicia Hooper is in her second year of the dual Masters of Social Work/Sociology program.

     Our job is to help students successfully navigate the college application process, with particular emphasis on encouraging proactive, attainable goals.

If the students’ focus is on joining the workforce immediately after high school, we help with:

·         Resume writing

·         Interview tips
 

If the students’ focus is on attending community college or a university after high school, we help with:

·         Information regarding Dual Credit and AP/IB programs

·         SAT/ACT sign-up and study assistance

·         FAFSA/TASFA

·         Scholarship searches

·         College Applications

·         Tutoring
 

If the students’ focus is on joining the Armed Forces, we:

·         Help put them in contact with a recruiter

·         Provide information on the ASVAB

·         Discuss options regarding college attendance in conjunction with military service

·         Military scholarships

 

How we see students:

·         Calling students to the Go Center, speaking with them one-on-one or in small groups (usually takes around 5-10 minutes, longer if registering or completing applications)

·         Preparing/delivering  5 minute in-class presentations on the basics of what the Go Center does (best for Freshman/Sophomores)

·         Longer-duration presentations during a class period that can encompass SAT/ACT registration, resume building, filling out FAFSA/TASFA and college applications (teacher-driven and on first-come, first-served basis)

·         After school on Wednesdays during late night on a walk-in or appointment basis
