Middle School Meets NYU

College Connections offers an engaging experience that exposes 5th-8th graders from middle schools and community-based organizations across the U.S. to the landscape of higher education. During this session, students will learn about why college matters, the college application process, tips for making college affordable, and things to consider when deciding which college or university is the right fit.
