Shadow Day is a project of Student Outreach Services at GCC. Shadow Day was created to simulate a one-day college experience to high school students. Each semester, approximately 500 high school students participate in this one-day experience.
During the day, students receive the following information:
- Admissions Process at GCC
- Financial Aid
- Transfer Program
- Academic Programs
- Co-Curricular Activities
Students also participate in a campus tour and learn about services and programs offered.
After the campus tour, students are paired with a GCC student and attend a college classroom.
During lunch, a panel of GCC students share their experiences and challenges about transitioning from high school to college and from college to a university.
If you would like to have your school participate in a Shadow Day experience, please contact Tzoler Oukayan at (818) 240-1000, ext. 5457.
