Over 60 students and parents attend Rebel Preview to learn more about the opportunities available at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
On Saturday, October 14, students and parents from Del Sol Academy and Chaparral High School joined Fulfillment Fund Las Vegas on a trip to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) to attend Rebel Preview.
During Rebel Preview students and parents had the opportunity to customize their day according to their interests. Workshops offered during the day covered topics including academics, college readiness, and student life on campus. Students and parents also had the option to take a tour of the campus and specific colleges. Moreover, high school seniors in attendance were able to apply for admissions and complete the FAFSA on the spot. As part of the Fulfillment Fund Las Vegas experience, students were able to hear from current FFLV scholars attending UNLV.
