Spring BBQ is our biggest event of the year and one that the entire program looks forward to. During this event, high school juniors from all of our partner schools take a field trip to visit the UW Seattle campus where we provide tours, lunch, and interesting lectures from UW faculty members. This event allows the students to get a first-hand experience of what college is like. For many of them, this will be their first time being on a college campus. The goal is to make it an amazing experience that allows the students to truly imagine themselves in a similar place in the coming years. Overall, the event is a chance for students to start thinking about post-secondary plans. This year, Spring BBQ will be held on Wednesday, May 3rd at the UW Seattle campus.
