The faculty and staff of the College of Education at Texas A&M University-Kingsville will host middle school students, their parents and their teachers at the first Mini-Jav Day scheduled from 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, July 28, in room 122 of Rhode Hall, 1055 N. University Blvd.

Mini-Jav Day is geared toward sixth through eighth grade students who will be first generation college students or who come from a bilingual home and want to go to college, said Dr. LaVonne Fedynich, assistant professor of educational leadership and counseling. The seminar is made possible thanks to a Gear Up grant from the United States Department of Education.

Students and parents attending will receive an overview of financial aid, housing, tutoring and more throughout the evening. A campus tour is part of the event. Refreshments will be provided.

Although the seminar is hosted by the College of Education, students interested in studying any discipline are invited to attend.

For more information, call Fedynich at 361-593-4312 or email kflck00@tamuk.edu or project coordinator Sarahi Lepe at kssl000@tamuk.edu.
