More than 300 5th-grade students from Hobart Middle School visited the PNW-Hammond campus on Friday, October 19, 2018, on a “Walk into My Future” event day organized by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. The event was an opportunity to showcase various educational paths and related careers students can expect to encounter at university, as well as contributions that students and university staff and faculty can have on education, research, and community and world functioning.
Students were able to tour various academic buildings, participated in a large-group “Game of Life” activity, and rotated through visiting stations that featured demonstrations and hands-on activities in (for instance) the Communications and Creative Arts broadcasting studio, the nursing simulation labs, Gyte science labs and experiments, and 3D visual technologies at PNW’s Center for Innovation through Visualization and Simulation (CIVS). For the first time in event history, in an informal polling of activities, CIVS 3D videos and 3D glasses managed to tie the sack lunches for “most memorable event of the tour.”
Time for an Office of Very Undergraduate Admissions?
