GO PUBLIC! Assembly at Turners Falls High School on November 18, 2014. 

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 campaign organized by the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education in partnership with the Commonwealth's 29 public college and university campuses. In high school auditoriums across the state, college students share stories from their own campus experiences and give high school students a personalized view of what college life is really like, from how they chose a major to life in a dorm to how they developed study skills. Turners Falls High School students will be attending the GO PUBLIC! Assembly on November 18, 2014; each will receive a bag of college brochures and small gifts from admissions staff, as well as important information on financial aid, dual enrollment programs and college transfer opportunities. Please join us in welcoming the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education to Turners Falls High!
