PAC teams up with North Park Toyota for Graduate and Drive Giveaway

July 26, 2021

Palo Alto College and North Park Toyota have partnered up to get students where they need to go. When students enroll to attend Palo Alto College for the fall 2021 semester, they will be entered in the College’s Graduate and Drive Giveaway, and one lucky student will get the keys to a brand-new car at the May 2023 graduation.

Students who enrolled to attend Palo Alto College for the fall 2020 semester will also be entered in the College’s Graduate and Drive Giveaway. One lucky student will get the keys to a brand-new car at the May 2022 graduation.

Getting involved is essential to student success, which is why students who are actively engaged in at least one of the many student organizations the College has to offer will receive one additional entry in the contest.
