We know a student doesn’t make the decision to attend college on their own. Family plays a large role in supporting and nurturing students as they make these life-changing decisions. Not all family members are comfortable with English as a first language and we want to make sure everyone gets the information they need, in the way they need it, to help students become future Panthers!

Students will be able to:
• participate in a resource fair
• take part in breakout sessions about high school preparation, admission to UWM and financial aid
• attend a student panel; ask questions and get the answers from the student perspective
• enjoy a campus tour

Entendemos que para un estudiante la decisión de asistir a una Universidad no es una que él/ella hace por sí solo. La familia es una fuente de apoyo muy importante para el estudiante cuando se trata de hacer decisiones. Queremos que todos los estudiantes y sus familias se sientan cómodos usando su primer idioma (Español) y que puedan recibir la información necesaria para poder asistir a nuestra universidad.
En este evento tendrán la oportunidad de participar en:
• Una feria de recursos e información
• Talleres de Preparación para el colegio, admisiones, y asistencia económica.
• Podrán hacer preguntas a un panel de estudiantes exitosos
• Tomar un tour de la universidad.
