For the eighth year, Northeastern State University and KIPP Tulsa College Preparatory, a public charter middle school in Tulsa, will partner to give seventh-grade students a chance to experience college first-hand.
Buses will drop off the students off at the NSU-Broken Arrow campus Wednesday morning. The students will find out more about the Learning with Learning Styles program, getting their hands dirty in Forensic Anthropology, and participating in Project Wild. Representatives from various colleges will provide demonstrations to students to shed light on these areas of study.
Students from the Teaching and Urban Reform Network (TURN) not only help with this project, but are involved with KIPP during their school year to learn various classroom management techniques and see some of their successful practices in action. The college experience at NSU is part of KIPP Tulsa’s effort to put its students — 92 percent of whom are from low-income households — on the path to and through college.
