The Office of Multicultural Affairs at UW-Superior hosted seven Latino high school students from Superior Senior High School and Denfeld High School for their annual Latino College Student For A Day - a one day pre-college program.

The program allows high school students an opportunity to experience college life and gain important information and make connections within UW-Superior by being matched up with a UW-Superior student for the day. The students sit in on classes, tour the campus, eat lunch in the Yellowjacket Union Café, talk to the Admissions Office, and much more.
