Students visiting from Gary, Indiana, get a variety of UNI experiences

Posted on Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

The Gary Community School Corporation, Gary, Indiana, brought 30 students to visit UNI for their annual recruiting trip Thursday-Friday, March 25-26. The group included juniors and seniors.

During the trip the students toured campus, visited with academic departments, enjoyed free time in the Wellness and Recreation Center, and attended "An Evening with Cornell West" which was sponsored by the CME. The visit coincided with the week-long celebration of UNI Men's Basketball participation in the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16.

During this trip, qualifying seniors interviewed for UNI scholarships. The Gary, Indiana, recruitment program has been in place for more than 10 years.

Consuela Cooper, UNI Admissions, coordinated the two-day visit.
