What Is "Go Public!"?
Thinking about college? Worried about college costs? Wondering if a community college, state university or UMass campus is the right place for you?
“Go Public!” is a new campaign organized by the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education in partnership with Massachusetts' 29 public colleges and universities. The fall 2012 series featured events at local high schools as well as a special Boston-area event for prospective students who are military veterans. We hope to grow the "Go Public!" campaign in future years to include more school districts and communities.
Each event is hosted by a leading member of the Legislature and features student speakers who tell of their experience attending a community college, state university or UMass campus. Governor Patrick videotaped a special message to high school students which is also shared at the events. Campuses run financial aid and career planning seminars for students and their families. Admissions officers from many of the state’s public colleges and universities are on site at each event to answer questions.
