CSRA College Night
CSRA College Night
September 16, 2003
Student picture

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. 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. CSRA College Night is a cooperative effort with DOE-SR, WSRC and its partners, SRP Federal Credit Union, industry and local educational institutions.
