LAWRENCE -- The University of Kansas Office of Admissions and Scholarships has announced its spring schedule, complete with 19 events to educate future Jayhawks about the university. The events include nine days for high school juniors and the Multicultural Road Show Feb. 23 through 25.

Beginning Feb. 27, high school juniors will be able to receive a comprehensive introduction to KU through campus tours, information about student life and advice about how to prepare for the senior year in high school. Parents are encouraged to attend, and a small fee and preregistration are required. More than 1,000 high school juniors are expected to attend. The ninth and final junior day is April 30.

Multicultural programs such as Super Saturday will educate high school sophomores and juniors interested in multicultural resources and organizations at KU. On March 6, students will learn about admissions, scholarships, financial aid, housing, college preparation and multicultural support services. Spanish translators will be available on campus, and registration is available online.

From Feb. 23 through 25, KU's Multicultural Road Show travels to Kansas City, Kan., Topeka and Wichita.
