College Previews/Tours



Sam Houston State University, in association with Texas Association for College Admission Counseling, is in charge of hosting CAMP College which is a FREE education college camp. This is a great opportunity for those students who have never been to a college campus and are interested in criminal justice, law enforcement, forensics, ROTC, performing arts, musical theater, dance, music, nursing, electronics, agriculture, rodeo and other great programs that SHSU has to offer. The camp will be June 6, 2011 - June 8, 2011. Qualified and interested students need to register at, and selected students will be notified by the CAMP College review board. Deadline for registration is April 15.

Field of Medicine -
Any student who has shown academic excellence and leadership potential, who is interested in the field of medicine, and who would be interested in being nominated to attend the National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine next summer needs to see me by September 24, 2010.

"Paying for Your College Education"
is a guide designed to walk parents and students through the process of applying for financial aid and student loans.  Copies will be available in the counselor's office.

The 2011 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards is underway, and would like to recognize students in the middle and high school grades who have exhibited exemplary community service. Students may complete applications online at or by November 1, 2010 and then submit them to their school principals or to the head of one of these officially designated local organizations: a Girl Scout Council, county 4-H group, American Red Cross chapter, YMCA or affiliate of HandsOn Network. Each participating school reviews the applications of its students, selects one honoree and verifies their application online by November 8, 2010.   

State Honorees have the chance of winning $1,000 and an all expense paid trip to Washington D.C. in May, 2011


The Texas Online Preparation for College Admissions Tests (TOPCAT) provides free online SAT and ACT test preparation materials in English and Spanish to Texas middle and high school students, and adults preparing to enroll in college for the first time. TOPCAT is a joint project for the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) and the Texas Education Agency). TOPCAT allows free access to SAT and ACT test prep tutorials, practice sessions, timed sample tests, a vocabulary builder, and test-taking tips. The tutorials address each subject area and content category covered by SAT and ACT, and typically contain between 30 and 90 minutes of instructional materials each. Practice sessions provide individualized feedback for each correct and incorrect answer. The vocabulary builder contains over 1600 words, and like the practice sessions, adapt to each student's ability level.  Students can access TOPCAT through the College for Texans website

Students complete web-based lessons and travel to Johnson Space Center (JSC) for a six-day on-site summer experience. At JSC, students are divided into teams and work under the guidance of a NASA mentor, student mentor, and teacher to design a space exploration mission.

Through this experience, students will discover numerous career opportunities and are encouraged to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, or STEM fields. NASA's Johnson Space Center is an excellent stage to present this unique experience to our nation's future workforce.

The state of Texas, along with community organizations, partner with JSC to support HAS. There is no cost for participation and all expenses are included. Students may also receive a high school science elective credit toward graduation upon successful completion of the program.

A new magazine named In Demand is located in Ms. Orr's office. It is a publication put out by the US Department of Labor, and contains information regarding careers, and each issue targets a specific field and includes professional and technical careers. Issue 1 is related to careers in construction and issue 2 is related to careers in energy. Come by and take a look for ideas on future career goals. There is also a DVD available on careers in food science, which have nothing to do with nutrition, but more to do with the biology and chemistry of food.
