Each year Occidental College welcomes traditionally underrepresented students to campus to discover firsthand what makes Oxy distinct. Participants will have the opportunity to tour the campus, attend classes, meet with faculty, staff and current students, spend the night in a residence hall, and explore our surrounding communities.
This year’s program is scheduled for Sunday, October 19 – Tuesday, October 21. Participants will arrive on campus on Sunday and depart early Tuesday morning.
If invited to attend MVP, Oxy will cover the full cost of attendance for the program including meals, housing, and air transportation (if applicable).
The program is designed for traditionally underrepresented students who have not already had the opportunity to visit campus. All applicants must be entering seniors. Typically students are nominated to apply to the program by their high school counselor or a community partnership program.
Deadline to apply is September 8, 2014. Go here to apply.
