Get ready for DiscoverU 2015!
Mark your calendars, DiscoverU is taking place Oct. 12-16, 2015! DiscoverU is an exciting week for students across Seattle and South King County to explore college and career options. Students of all ages, pre-K through college, will have the opportunity to think about how education can help them reach their dreams. During this week, students will learn about educators' college and career paths, see staff proudly sporting their college gear and participate in fun activities that encourage them to explore their futures.
But DiscoverU isn't limited to schools! Everyone from colleges, businesses, community-based organizations, libraries, city governments, community members and families are invited to join DiscoverU and put college and career in the spotlight!
