KEY Center Enrichment Events are provided to members to build critical thinking skills, expand student knowledge, and explore academic options. Our pdf Fall 2016 Calendar of Events shows specific Enrichment Event functions and dates which are available only to current/active members. The following Enrichment Event options will be offered every semester.


College Tours

Experiencing a larger campus environment firsthand is often the best way to learn about a college/university.  At various times during the academic year, the KEY Center will invite interested members to tour the campus of a 4-year Texas University.  Field trips may take place over one day or multiple days, depending on distance from Victoria College.

Food for Thought

Keeping our minds limber prepares us for a more effective learning experience. With this in mind, at various times during the academic year, KEY Center members will be invited to participate in topical lunch-hour group sessions.  These sessions will focus on developing critical thinking skills through lecture, discussion, and exercises. Lunch will be provided for participants.

Time Out Tuesdays

Each Tuesday during Fall and Spring semesters group counseling is available with counselor Magali Silva. Members are welcome to join sessions that focus on reducing stress. Members talk, share, and encourage each other, all facilitated by Magali. Lunch will be provided for participants.
