Wow, talk about getting out there! I love the idea of the One Day University. What better way to get students interested in college than actually bringing them to one!?
This reminds me about the part in the movie Freedom Writers where after reading Anne Frank the class raises money to bring the woman who hid her to come speak. The teacher made the call. It was a long shot, but like Wayne Gretzky says "you miss 100% of the shots you don't take."
Luckily she took that shot, called, and had her come speak and change the lives of her students. Much like these opportunities!
