Middle and high school students visit UCF to gain insight to their next step in their education.

The Office of Multicultural Academic and Support Services recently hosted College Prep Day, a dedicated event to help multicultural and first generation middle and high school students and their parents to better understand the steps necessary for admission into college or university. Approximately 300 middle and high school students from Volusia, Brevard, Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties attended.

The middle school students were welcomed by Paul Pierre Louis, coordinator of the College Reach-Out Program at UCF, who shared an inspirational message with them. An interactive panel of high school students provided the middle school students with an opportunity to gain more insight on the high school experience.

The motivational speaker for the high school students was Star 94.5 FM’s Monica May, and they received information on the various elements of college life. The high school students had the opportunity to interact with a panel of current UCF Knights and were provided with information from the UCF Office of Undergraduate Admissions, UCF Student Financial Assistance, and Kaplan.
