Text, Talk, Set to Go


Juniors and seniors can prepare to get Set to Go with our initial conversation, delivered to their small group through a series of pre-programmed text messages.

Here’s how it works:

Students (or families) gather together in groups of 3-4 with one cell phone for their group. They text SETTOGO to 89800 to receive a series of text messages that guide their group through a 45-minute conversation on getting prepared for college. The text messages include polling questions, discussion questions and social media interactions that help students start planning now for their first year of college.
