The presentation, "Preparing for the Future," instructs students on how to research and choose the college that is right for them. The presentation, "Financing My Future," focuses on paying for a postsecondary education. Group discussions will analyze payment options such as federal student aid, grants, work-study and loans. Group activities such as "When I Grow Up," will give visiting students the opportunity to discuss what they want for a future career and the process that it takes to attain that career.

 "College Knowledge Days are a great opportunity for students and educators to start the conversation about postsecondary options," said LaQuana Price, Eastern's assistant director of admissions, who coordinated the event. "The program allows students to start planning early for their future."
