GottaDo College®Student

GottaDo College® is an early awareness initiative of the College Student Development Center, Inc.  

GottaDo College® Treasure Hunt: Presenters engage students in a dialogue about what life may look like after high school. Students work together in groups to complete an interactive activity.

Length of Time: 1 hour
Recommended audience: Elementary & middle school students.
Equipment required: Costs may be incurred for materials and supplies.

GottaDo College® Simulation: When schools are closed, GottaDo College® is open! Participants will pretend to be college students for a day starting with orientation and finishing with a graduation celebration. High School students participate in eye-opening, fun-filled, mock activities. This event is the perfect activity for a day off from school! Each GottaDo College® Simulation is different, so students can come back again and again. Call (954) 558-2818 and ask about group rates.

Length of Time: Eight hours. (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.)
Recommended Audience: College-bound high school students in grades 9-12.

Lectures & Presentations made in schools and the community are primarily designed to make the public aware of the fact that in the very near future all new jobs created in the U.S. will require some type of formal education credential after high school. In addition, research shows that the U.S. must rapidly increase its rate of degree production in order to meet future labor market demands. Contact us to schedule a presentation for your group or event. Fees may be waived for non-profit organizations. Presentation topics, length of time, recommended audience and equipment required vary. Topics include:

College Culture Shock: Adjusting to college can be overwhelming for students who are not aware of the enormous differences between high school and college.

This session clarifies what students “think” college life is like and what it is in “reality.”

Length of Time: 1-2 hours
Recommended audience: Rated PG. For adults and high school juniors & seniors.
Equipment Required: Projector and screen for PowerPoint presentation.

Set Up To Fail: A Day In The Life of A College Student: Our brightest, most gifted and talented students are getting into college and getting financial assistance, but they are rarely coming out with a degree in hand. This session examines college graduation rates, transition theory and the cognitive, affective and conative factors that influence college success. The implications of current issues in post-secondary education attainment will be discussed.

Length of Time: 1-2 hours
Recommended audience: Adults. High school students welcome.
Equipment Required: Projector and screen for PowerPoint presentation.

Anatomy of Higher Education: Understanding the nature of higher education, the differences in various types of colleges and universities and how they operate can be a daunting task.
