More than 200 high school juniors from across Nebraska and surrounding states will have the opportunity for a daylong college  experience during Junior Day at the University of Nebraska at Kearney on Monday, April 4.

Junior Day 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 a number of useful materials that will be provided.

UNK Chancellor Doug Kristensen will give the Welcome at 9:45 a.m. Juniors will participate in a college information panel from 10-10:45 a.m., where they will learn about financial aid, admissions and the Honors Program. Jordan Gonzales of Morrill, UNK student body president, will talk about student life at UNK.

“Junior 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 recruiter.

At 10:45 a.m. juniors will get an academic overview of the various majors offered at UNK. Faculty from several UNK academic departments will be available for questioning during the academic information sessions from 11:05 a.m.-12:05 p.m. Students have the opportunity to speak with faculty from the College of Business and Technology, College of Education, College of Fine Arts and Humanities, College of Natural and Social Sciences, and the Health Sciences.

Lunch will be provided by UNK Dining Services from 12:05-1:15 p.m. Juniors will dine among UNK students in the dining hall. After lunch, juniors will be given a campus tour from 1:20-2:30 p.m. In addition, students will be given a Loper send off at 2:30 p.m. by Louie the Loper.

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