Diversity Recruitment Day is designed to support underrepresented, underserved, first generation and diverse high school students from around the area. The schedule will include admissions presentations, campus tours, student panels and academic sessions. Participating students will learn strategies for success in high school, as well as practical tools to assist them in making the transition from high school to college.
Diversity Recruitment Day is provided at no cost to student participants, their parents/guardians and schools. The event is sponsored by the WSU Offices of Inclusion & Diversity, Marketing & Communication, and Admissions, in collaboration with Student Affairs at Southeast Technical College.
