February 5, 2004 :: ‘College Connection’ Radio Program Debuts Saturday
Oklahomans are encouraged to tune in Saturday to a new radio program, “College Connection,” to find out the latest news on state and national higher education issues, as well as to hear a variety of guests provide valuable information on preparing for college.
“College Connection,” sponsored by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, will air each Saturday beginning Feb. 7 on KFAQ 1170 AM in Tulsa from 6 a.m. to 7 a.m. and on KOMA-News/Talk 1520 AM in Oklahoma City from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.
“The State Regents look forward to the opportunity to provide information on a weekly basis that will help Oklahomans prepare for college both academically and financially,” said Chancellor Paul G. Risser. “‘College Connection’ provides families with another resource for college information while highlighting significant state and local higher education issues and featuring input from educational and policy leaders.”
In addition to news highlights from Oklahoma campuses and a recap of President George W. Bush’s State of the Union statement regarding community colleges, the debut program will also feature a discussion with Risser on the priorities and future of higher education in Oklahoma, as well as special guests sharing information on College Goal SundaySM, a statewide event designed to provide financial aid and preparing for college information to students and their families.
