Yuma, AZ (November 8, 2022) – Before they even step foot onto a middle school campus, fifth-grade students are getting the opportunity to have the full college experience at Arizona Western College.

For over a decade, AWC has invited fifth graders to become college students for a day through the I’m Going to College event. On Thursday, Nov. 3, a group of 142 students from Yuma Elementary District One schools, O.C. Johnson Elementary and Dorothy Hall Elementary, participated in the program.
