Previous Events

College Awareness Day 2018

The day was broken up into two halves. The first half of the day, students followed their affinity track (ACES, BOLD, DALE, PIPE, or RAIN), where as a group they experienced a mock university class and an empowering workshop. The second half of the day, all students came together to explore the college fair and select from a variety of afternoon breakout sessions.
