A.V.I.D. students visit Florida Campus

1/31/2011 (Archived)

Fifty students from Heritage Middle School in Deltona, Fla., near Port Orange, toured the Florida Campus on Jan. 7. The seventh and eighth graders are all members of Advancement Via Individual Determination (A.V.I.D.). A.V.I.D. students are the first generation within a family with the intent and goal of entering college. Many are from low-income families and all are enrolled in advanced classes with the expectation of participation in honors classes when they reach high school. By the time these students enter high school, they will have visited a total of eight colleges and been exposed to many different career choices. The campus visit is one of several scheduled for 2011 by Florida Campus Admissions Coordinator Susan Juliano.
