Arizona State University is hosting Future Sun Devil Families (FSDF) Day this Saturday. This free half-day college workshop event is open to the public. ASU welcomes families, middle school and high school students to experience the campus together.

FSDF Day will equip each attendee with critical information about pursuing a higher education and achieving college success.

“It is our hope that families will leave with a greater understanding of what it takes for their students to be college ready,” said Lorenzo Chavez, director of family initiatives. “We want families to know that college is attainable, and it is not too early to start planning and preparing for success at ASU.”

In a series of fun, interactive workshops, FSDF Day staff will address such questions as financial aid, admission requirements and the steps students should take during high school to be better prepared to succeed in college.

“The impact of Future Sun Devil Families Day goes far beyond this event,” Chavez said. “Families receive and share college information and resources with neighbors, friends, family members and the larger community.”
