'College is more than just classes': Event for high school sophomores, juniors will showcase undergraduate research opportunities

Submitted by Laura Perez

Explore! K-State

High school sophomores and juniors will have an opportunity to learn about undergraduate research and leadership opportunities at K-State this March. Explore! is an interactive event designed to introduce high school sophomores and juniors to the exciting research, leadership and creative opportunities at Kansas State University.

The program will take place on K-State's campus from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 8. In addition to learning more about opportunities for undergraduates, students will go on a campus tour, meet with the Career Center, visit the Sunderland Foundation Innovation Lab at Hale Library and receive a free lunch in the K-State Student Union.

The Explore! motto is "college is more than classes." During this daylong experience, students will participate in a series of hands-on mini workshops, hear from current undergraduate students about their daily lives, and learn how these opportunities will prepare them for future careers. The event emphasizes that regardless of a student’s professional goals, K-State provides students with opportunities and connections to launch their careers.

The free program is funded by the CASE Collaborative Recruitment Grant and hosted by Student Success in collaboration with the Chapman Center for Rural Studies, the Office for the Advancement of Women in Science and Engineering, the University Honors Program, TRIO and the primary texts certificate program. Some transportation costs may also be covered.
