CHC Outreach Program Hosts Enrollment Workshops

Crafton Hills College student services team members Frances Southerland- Amsden and Alex Jaco provided a series of five in-person and online enrollment workshops for students missing one or more enrollment steps. They hosted these workshops the week before classes started. In total they served 112 students who all walked away registered for fall classes. Many students, like Joseline Manzano (pictured below with team member Frances Southerland-Amsden), shared that she recently graduated from Orange View High School and almost passed up the opportunity to enroll in classes.

Joseline was contacted directly by support team members and learned about some of the resources currently offered at Crafton such as free rental books through CHC’s new Books+ program, Chromebooks that are available to check out from the library, and financial aid options. She also learned about the opportunity to attend an in- person workshop to help her complete her remaining steps and register for classes. Joseline felt compelled to give college another chance and decided to attend the enrollment workshop. Joseline is now enrolled in eight units. She feels like a huge weight has been lifted off her shoulders and plans to complete her degree in health sciences and transfer to Loma Linda University.
