Early College Awareness


For more than 9 years, through our Early College Awareness program,
the Harvard Club of Chicago has partnered with high schools throughout
Chicago to help students and their parents prepare for and get excited
about college. Our message over the years has been consistent: whether
your goal is to go to Harvard or your local junior college, there are
things you can do in high school and even middle school to set
yourself up for success.

This year, the Harvard Club partnered with Foreman High School in
Chicago's Portage Park neighborhood to plan one of our largest events
to date. On October 18th, nearly 250 students and their parents heard
from more than 40 presenters in both English and Spanish, with keynote
addresses by Mawi Asgedom, AB '99 and Professor David Gilliam, AB '72.
