Diego Bastidas (2013 Biology Alum) brought his mentee, Andy Hutton, to the biology lab in between his classes for the Hispanic/Latino College Student For A Day program.

October 9th marks the day where up to 13 Hispanic/Latino high school students will "shadow" UW-Superior students of color in a program called "College Student For A Day" program.

This program matches high school students with UW-Superior students by career interest and each pairing of students spend the day together. The mentees (high school students) will follow their mentor (UW-Superior student) to their classes, have lunch in the cafeteria and get a personalized tour of the campus. An Admissions Recruiter will also meet with the students at the end of the day.

This program gives the high school student a sense of what it is like to be a college student and is guided by their mentor, and Multicultural Affairs staff, about things such as the importance of financial aid, on-campus housing, disciplines discussion, and much more.

The high school student participants will be sophomores, juniors and seniors from Superior Senior High School, East High School and Denfeld High School. The Office of Multicultural Affairs has sponsored this recruitment program since 1999.
