Indiana University Northwest is pleased to offer area high school students an opportunity to experience the university atmosphere at Academic College Experience (ACE) Day on Friday, March 23. Participation in this annual event is free and is open to high school juniors and seniors.
During ACE Day, students will experience the academic atmosphere at IU Northwest by attending presentations given by University professors and participating in class discussions. They will also have the chance to consider future career options by participating in career-focused sessions with representatives from the University’s various departments and programs. During ACE Day, participants will interact with other college-bound students from across the seven-county Northwest Indiana region.
ACE Day’s series of hour-long sessions runs from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m. Students have their choice of three sessions throughout the morning. The first two will be academic-oriented presentations, and the third will be a career-oriented session.
Academic presentation subjects include such interesting topics as “Who Wants to be a Millionaire,” “Multiple Intelligences” and “From Camelot to Spamalot: King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table through the Ages.” Students can also choose which career presentation they would like to attend. Choices include sessions on education, criminal justice, business, and any one of a variety of health-professions programs, including dental education, radiological sciences, nursing, and health information management.
Lunch will be provided for students in the Moraine Student Center at 12 p.m. There will be a small open house following lunch at which students can obtain additional information about IU Northwest programs.
ACE Day is open to groups of students from area schools and to individual students. School faculty and staff members are welcome to attend with their students.
