14th Annual Early Awareness Day @ UNK 

Tuesday, March 27th 

About 75 4th Grade students from Elm Creek, Pleasanton, Amherst , and Axtell 
will be on campus between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. 

We will start the day off in the Health & Sports Complex and from there, the students will 
be touring campus and attending presentations and demonstrations all over campus.

Some planned activities include: Graphic Design, Construction Management, Fun with Technology, a Planetarium Show, 
Residence Hall tours in Randall and Stout Halls, and hands-on activities in the Radio/TV areas in the Mitchell Center. 

The students and their sponsors will be treated to lunch at the Nebraskan in the Commons between 11:15 and Noon

We will wrap up the day playing wallyball in Cushing in the racquetball courts

Early Awareness Day was developed through the efforts of the 
Nebraska Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NeASFAA) 
and is part of the “Look to the Future” curriculum being utilized at these four schools. 

This event is sponsored by the Office of Financial Aid, the Kearney EducationQuest 
Foundation, the Nebraska College Savings Plan, Nelnet and Platte Valley State Bank.

We host this event each year to give these young people a glimpse of college 
life in hopes that it will spark an interest in furthering their education. 

A very special Thank Yougoes out to all who generously offered to help in the 
production of this event. Your participation and contribution of time and effort is greatly appreciated!
