Alvernia hopes to attract greater numbers of Chinese students to study at its Reading campus through a unique partnership. Aimed at preparing larger numbers of high school students from Reading to attend and succeed at the college of their choice, the Reading Collegiate Scholars Program (RCSP) got underway this spring. Four Alvernia students — Christine Hall, Ashley Winters, Julianne Kuzma and Jenschool students in four Olivet Boys & Girls Clubs as part of the program. In addition, Alvernia student mentors provided SAT preparation and career guidance to Olivet students, and led discussions about the college application process and choice of major process. Through the RCSP program, eligible students can earn four-year scholarships to attend Alvernia. The first Reading Scholars are expected to enter Alvernia this fall.
