High School Goes to College November 29

posted Nov 10, 2017, 6:02 PM by Nicole Linskens   [ updated Nov 10, 2017, 6:02 PM ]

For high school or two year college students who love chatting about cultural trends, stories, and films! Or, for teachers: do you know students who have a passion for learning how to communicate with others as they express themselves creatively? Do you think they could benefit from sitting in on college English and Foreign Language courses?

If so, please consider trying on college for a day with the Department of Literatures and Languages at UW-Parkside.

Our students enjoy small classes, a supportive community of peers, and individual attention from their professors as they master skills that make them ready for a wide variety of careers.

We’re waiting to welcome prospective students to our open classrooms inEnglish, French, and Spanish on November 29th and 30th, 2017 to show them why taking our courses is a smart and exciting choice for their future. Each of our instructors is developing classroom activities for his/her class that will include and motivate visiting high school students. Students will also have an opportunity to tour the campus, meet college students who share their interests, and meet and hear from celebrated, award-winning sci fi and fantasy author Ken Liu https://kenliu.name/ whose work provides the inspiration for our Star Wars Fan Fiction Contest. Mr. Liu’s forthcoming book, The Legends of Luke Skywalker is a collection of myths and tall tales about the legendary Jedi, Luke Skywalker.

Please sign up if you are interested, so we can help you to make it happen. 

For reservations or questions, contact the department chair Dr. Mary Lenard at: Lenard@uwp.edu
