The first Latino Family Day at Cumberland University is set for Saturday, Nov. 21, for students and their families who are interested in learning more about what the university has to offer.
The day will begin at 9 a.m. with presentations and a panel discussion, lunch at 11:30 a.m. and a men's soccer team match at noon. Participants will learn about CU's admissions process, meet faculty and staff from various disciplines, speak to financial aid representatives, tour campus and watch the nationally ranked soccer team in the playoffs. Interpreters will be on hand.
Cumberland University is a partner with Equal Chance for Education, an organization that provides scholarships without regard to race, religion or nation of birth. Participants will be able to hear bout opportunities through Equal Chance for Education during Latino Family Day.
"Providing a welcoming environment to students from various backgrounds is something we take great pride in at Cumberland University. When any student is making a decision about furthering their education, we want the student to place Cumberland University at the top of their list. Events like this allow the university to educate and inform the student, as well as their families, what the university and our community can provide," Eddie Lovin, executive director of enrollment services at CU, said.
Those interested in attending Latino Family Day are asked to register at www.cumberland.edu/preview. Questions should be directed to the office of admissions at email@example.com.
