The Office of Multicultural Affairs, along with the University of Wisconsin-Superior,  hosted 10 African American high school students from Superior Senior High School, Denfeld High School, and East High School on Wednesday, Feb. 26.

The high school students were paired up with our current UW-Superior students for the day - attending classes, getting a tour and meeting with the various campus offices and department faculty/staff members, eating lunch in the cafeteria, and learning the ways to become a successful college student.

Chancellor Renee Wachter met with Adreanna Valentine, a sophomore at Superior Senior High School and her mentor for the day, Jordan Wigfall, a UW-Superior student majoring in Psychology. Jordan participated in this program when she was in high school and wanted to give back by being a mentor for the program.

This multicultural recruitment program has been happening annually since 1999. We thank you for your continued support and involvement with this program which is designed to recruit students of color to our campus but it also is a leadership opportunity/retention program for our current students of color. If you should have any questions please let me know by email or calling me at Ext. 8415 or the Program Student Lead, Kang Her at kher4@uwsuper.edu.
