Annually SASOP staff coordinates this outreach activity for high school students in grades 9-12. Students are welcomed to the HSU campus by President Rollin Richmond and greeted by American Indian college students. A keynote address by acclaimed speakers and tribal leaders precludes a day of informational workshops, campus tours, lunch, cultural activities, and a college fair. College recruiters from throughout the western states are invited to attend and provide information for the 300 plus students and community members in attendance.
