Text with Oregon Tech


Oregon Tech would like to reach out to junior and senior high school students to give them someone to talk to, connect with, and be mentored by in the hopes that they will stay focused on their studies and goals of going to college.

Does college really matter?
What do I need to do to go to college?
How am I going to afford college?
Are my grades good enough?

Any question is a good one, so ask us!

Our focus is not on recruiting for Oregon Tech but to help students succeed in applying and gaining admission to any school of higher education.
