Hispanic middle-school students from the Waterloo schools will tour UNI Friday, April 19. Hosts will be members of the university's Latino Student Union.

Leslie Jones, assistant professor in the Department of Biology, arranged the visit. 'This is an important service activity by our growing population of Latino students who are eager to be role models and inspire the Waterloo guests to start thinking about college early in their school careers.'

Students arrive at the Wellness Recreation Center, Room 247, at 9:30 a.m. At 11 a.m. they will have lunch in the Towers dining center; at 1 p.m. they will tour the McCollum Science Hall biology lab, Room 2245.
