Doors will open for check-in at 5PM

You will benefit from:

  • Practicing in a Professional Panel Interview
  • Learning How to Make a Good Impression
  • Meeting Other Students from Around the State
  • Asking Questions and Getting Advice from Current College Students
  • Receiving Information About Alternate Scholarships


Must RSVP by Friday, February 3rd as space is limited. If the event fills there will be a waiting list and you will be contacted if a ticket becomes available. Once registered, you will receive a packet in the mail with detailed information about the event.

Free parking is available on the street. There are two pay parking lots nearby (cash only and no more than $3) – one across from the building on Park Ave. between California and Stout, and the other is one block east at Welton and Park. Please do not try to park in the parking garage at Mile High United Way as space is very limited and these spots are reserved for the volunteer interviewers.
