I-PAC YEAR EVENT - May 28, 2014
ZB Students visit the College of Lake County and the
University Center
April 25th, 2014
Event was hosted by the Latino Alliance at CLC.  After a very informative presentation on the types of financing available, the programs offered at CLC and the options for transfers, the Latino Alliance treated ZB Students with a Pizza Lunch during which a Student Panel interacted with  Q&As.  After CLC, the students visited the nearby University Center where they learned about the consortium-based center that represents 18 universities.  Most impressive was the Distant Learning demo which proves it possible for students to pursue university studies without leaving home. 
Thank You!
