University Collaborative Project to host Kids Day April 17

Loyola press release - April 14, 2004

(New Orleans)—The Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Loyola University New Orleans and nine other student organizations have invited students from area schools to visit campus on April 17, 2004. The event is designed to introduce these children to the Loyola community and the possibilities of higher education. There will be a full schedule of events for the students and their parents are also invited to attend. Funding for the day has been provided by the Loyola Student Government Association, Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity, Loyola University Community Action Program and the University Collaborative Project.

Students from these elementary schools will be attending: Henry Allen, Benjamin Banneker, Good Shepherd, St. Rita, St. Joan of Arc, and St. Stephen. Middle school Samuel Green also has students participating. LUCAP will also bring about 45 students to the day to bring the total to about 130 students.

Students will be picked up in school buses at their home schools, bringing them to the St. Charles Avenue campus. They will tour the campus, attend a mock class and have lunch, with lots of fun activities for all. Professors Frank Jordan, from biological sciences and Peter Burns, from political science will teach the mock classes. Professor Al Alcazar will facilitate a Loyola student discussion panel sponsored by the Black Student Union, La Gente and Loyola Asian Student Organization.
