Discover your community colleges, state universities  and UMass

About Go Higher! Events

"Go Higher!" brings Massachusetts public college and university students into local high schools for a student-to-student exchange about choosing a college and a major, landing internships, navigating campus life and more!

Students speak at Marblehead High School

A major component of the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education's Go Higher! campaign is an event series at local high schools that educates students about public higher education options in the Commonwealth.

Each event includes student speakers who tell of their experience attending a community college, state university or UMass campus. Campuses bring interactive exhibits for students and their families, and admissions officers are on site at each event to answer questions.
