CLEMSON – The Charles H. Houston Center’s Office of Academic Excellence and the Greenville Regional Office of South Carolina Personal Pathways for Success will host College Knowledge 101 on Saturday, April 20th, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Clemson University in the Clemson House. The cost for each participant is $20, with lunch provided for all participants who register in advance.

The instructional component of College Knowledge 101, which will be led by Tim Jantzi of Jantzi Test Prep, is designed to provide students with strategies and skills to increase their scores on the national exam.

“Students will learn how the ACT and SAT are structured. Not only will they be able to make informed choices about which test is best for them, they will learn new strategies and skills to apply when testing and thus increase their overall scores,” said Starlett Craig, director of the Office of Academic Excellence.

“This educational program seeks to enable students to enhance and expand their knowledge of college admissions tests,” said Lamont A. Flowers, executive director of the Charles H. Houston Center for the Study of the Black Experience in Education at Clemson University.
