The Connecticut State Colleges & Universities (CSCU) has partnered with Connecticut Public Television (CPTV) to produce College Bound: A Look into Connecticut State Colleges & Universities, a new and original documentary about the CSCU system and public higher education in the state. The documentary features CSCU students, high school students and guidance counselors, employers, professors and alumni sharing their personal stories and discussing the impact going to college has on Connecticut families. The documentary also provides relevant insight into topics such as the rising cost of college tuition, what college rankings really mean, what skills employers are really looking for, and what the difference is between a public and private college.
“College Bound offers a glimpse into CSCU campuses and campus life that most outside of our system are not aware of and will genuinely be surprised and inspired by,” said CSCU President Mark Ojakian. “It’s also filled with important information for potential students, parents or anyone who is thinking about going to college.”
A free public screening will take place Thursday, March 1, at the Connecticut Science Center in Hartford, after a reception from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Registration is required: https://goo.gl/irVMyh
CPTV will then broadcast the documentary on Monday, March 26, at 10 p.m.; Sunday, April 22 at 9:30 a.m.; and Saturday, May 19 at 9 a.m. More information about College Bound: A Look into Connecticut State Colleges and Universities can be found at cptv.org/collegebound.
