College choice celebration

College Choice Celebration brings the next generation of the city’s talented youth together for an inspiring evening. The program features students speaking to their successes as part of the organization, as well as a big reveal of the colleges scholars will attend come fall, including schools such as Stanford, Cornell, Harvard and more. As each college is named, scholars who have committed their attendance will rise to be recognized for beating the odds and achieving success. The event is Chicago’s largest gathering of first-generation college students ever to announce their college acceptance in one spot. The program is followed by a reception in the Grand Ballroom, where scholars have the opportunity to mix and mingle with their peers and families.
