College/ Enrichment Events
The CSRA College Night is a cooperative effort among Department of Energy (DOE), Savannah River Nuclear Solutions, LLC (SRNS), SRP Federal Credit Union and IHeartRadio, along with local businesses and industry. The purpose of the event is to inform CSRA high school students (primarily 11th and 12th graders) and their parents of college education opportunities across the United States. In addition, professional and technical societies also attend. During the evening, attending juniors and seniors have the opportunity to register for scholarship drawings.
Over 130 engineering universities and liberal arts colleges/universities (TBA) from across the United States, which are accredited by one of the six Regional Accreditation Agencies, attend each year. Between 5 and 10 professional societies (TBA) attend and contribute to the scholarship fund and provide career information. Approximately 5,000 students, parents and educators attended last year.
The event originated in 1993 as the Engineering College Night for ABET Accredited Engineering Colleges and Universities only. In 1994, Engineering College Night was changed to CSRA College Night. A partnership was formed with eight independent schools in Augusta, GA (Liberal Arts College Night) to offer a joint fair.
