Rotary College Day 
The Annual Rotary College Day was held at Menlo College today to inspire Garfield School 7th grade students to attend college. Many of these 7th graders have never been on a college campus, and this was an opportunity for them to visit a small private college first hand. They got to explore the bookstore, a dormitory room, the library, the gym and weight room, and visit a lecture in progress. Menlo College student leaders escorted and interacted with them during their visit. Parents also attended and got to speak with faculty members and financial aid specialists to better prepare them with the process of college admission.
