UW-Parkside hosts Multicultural Open House Feb. 27
The University of Wisconsin-Parkside hosts more than 250 high school students, parents, counselors, and teachers during the Multicultural Open House. The students, who will come from high schools in both Wisconsin and Illinois to attend, will be on campus at 900 Wood Rd. in Kenosha all day.
"Our campus has strong legacy of serving a diverse student population. Students from diverse backgrounds add different perspectives to the campus and help create a dynamic learning environment," said Kelley Bellin, UW-Parkside director of College Access, Readiness, and Transition. "The Multicultural Open House is one more way we fulfill our mission to provide access to affordable, quality higher education to all students and families in southeastern Wisconsin and northern Illinois."
The UW-Parkside Multicultural Open House highlights the offices and student organizations that celebrate and support our students of color. It also provides students and parents with important information about admissions, financial aid and scholarships as well as tips on becoming a successful college student and graduate.
In addition to diverse groups and individuals from Racine and Kenosha, UW-Parkside Multicultural Open House attendees include students from Milwaukee's Audubon and Bay View high schools, Monona Grove High School near Madison, Sheboygan North HS, the Waukesha South High School Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) program, and the Mundelein, Illinois, AVID Program.For more information on this and future on-campus events, contact Kelley Bellin at firstname.lastname@example.org via email.
