Many of the young people who seek higher-education counseling via The Oasis Center’s College Connection program come from low-income backgrounds, and many would be the first in their family to earn a college degree. That can be a hard row, and for black women — historically underrepresented in the academy — the challenge can feel that much that much more daunting. “I want them to follow their passions,” College Connection financial aid coordinator Sharonda Campbell says. The College Access for Black Females Event, now in its second year, provides aspiring undergrads with useful information on choosing a school, completing the application process and applying for financial aid — and a few lucky students who attend will have their application fee, dorm deposit and/or ACT fee covered. For more information, call 983-6867 or email scampbell@oasiscenter.org.
