UNK– High school seniors from across Nebraska and northern Kansas will gather on the University of Nebraska at Kearney campus for Senior Day on Monday, Nov. 1.

Senior Day activities will begin at 9 a.m., when students check-in at the Nebraskan Student Union Atrium. A $10 fee will be paid at check-in to cover lunch and materials.

UNK Chancellor Doug Kristensen and Rowen Beck, Loper Liaison president, will give the welcome at 9:45 a.m. Seniors will then tour the UNK campus from 10-11:30 a.m.

“Senior Day is the best way to see if college is the best fit for a student, both academically and personally,” said Jael Roschewski, UNK admissions counselor.

At 11:30 a.m. seniors will divide into groups based on their area of academic interest. Faculty from various UNK academic departments will be available to talk about career opportunities in their fields and answer questions.

Lunch will be provided by UNK Dining Services from 12:15-1 p.m. Seniors will dine in the Commons at the Nebraskan Student Union.

“When students visit a campus, they not only get to see the student life, but also interact with students,” Roschewski said.

After lunch, seniors will attend breakout sessions from 1-2:20 p.m. The sessions will be led by UNK representatives from Residential and Greek Life, athletics, Financial Aid, intramurals, Study Abroad, music and performing arts, the Honors Program, ROTC, Campus Ministries and the National Student Exchange Program.

“We want to show students that college is more than just academics,” Roschewski said. “It’s about a life experience.”

Seniors can pre-register until 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 27. They can register online at:  www.unk.edu/seniorday For more information, contact the Office of Undergraduate Recruitment and Admissions at 800.352.7639 ortours@unk.edu.
