LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The University of Louisville is once again partnering with the Lincoln Heritage Council Boy Scouts of America and other local youth organizations for a one-day event to help young students learn skills that prepare them for college and the real world.
Middle and high school students from across the region are invited to visit UofL’s Belknap Campus from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, May 16, for the fourth annual “College for a Day.” The event will feature UofL faculty and staff leading sessions on topics ranging from dentistry to crime prevention. Scouts in attendance can also work toward earning a merit badge for each session.
In addition to the Boy Scouts, other partners include Learning for Life and Explorer Clubs, the Boys and Girls Club, Louisville Metro parks, Louisville Urban League, Jefferson County Public Schools, Louisville Central Community Center, Metro United Way and the Mayor’s Office for Youth Development.
Parents are welcome to visit campus with their children and can speak with UofL admissions and financial aid representatives during the morning session. Campus tours also will be available.
