On September 13, 2008 the University System of Maryland launched Way2GoMaryland, our statewide information campaign to encourage more students to begin preparing for college early.
Way2GoMaryland is a major component of USM’s efforts to increase the college preparation, participation, retention, and graduation rates of students statewide. Specifically, Way2GoMaryland is designed to help:
- motivate more students and their families to begin planning for college earlier, especially students from under-represented and non-traditional groups;
- increase the number of well-qualified students from diverse backgrounds prepared to enter the college admissions pipeline;
- encourage targeted populations to embrace the fact that college is both desirable and possible, with the appropriate planning and preparation;
- increase access to and use of information regarding secondary-school course selection, financial aid opportunities, and the college application process.
The campaign has hosted information sessions in Prince George's, Montgomery, Harford, and Baltimore counties, Western and Southern Maryland, and the Eastern Shore.
