Preview Day at UCSC--held each fall for prospective students, their parents, and counselors--will take place on Saturday, October 17, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The day's activities will include student-led campus tours of UCSC's eight residential colleges and workshops on financial aid, Educational Opportunity Programs, and the transfer program. Representatives from the campus's academic departments will also be on hand to provide information and answer questions.

Lunch will be available for purchase, and music and entertainment will be provided.

Registration will take place from 8:30 to 9:45 a.m. at the campus's Music Center. During registration and throughout the morning, representatives from the eight colleges, student affairs departments, and the recreational office will be available to answer questions.
