WALLA WALLA UNIVERSITY DAYS – ALL SENIORS
Walla Walla University Days will be Sunday-Tuesday, April 2-4. Our seniors will visit WWU and experience a taste of college life, including attending classes, informational meetings, and staying in the dorms. This will be an amazing opportunity to explore what Walla Walla University has to offer and to spend some fun time together as a class. The information obtained will be beneficial for them, even if they are not planning to attend WWU. Our students will have a great time at this event and are required to go. Please see important informational letter attached.

Registration is at 9:00 a.m. in the gym, and the activities will end around 3:30 p.m. For more information, contact Shelley Bacon at 509 675 5003, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
