Kids on Campus Education Day Acquaints Elementary, Middle School Students with Duquesne

Duquesne University will host its second annual Kids on Campus Education Day, on Wednesday, Dec. 5, a day of fun, learning and college awareness at the A.J. Palumbo Center.

Kindergarten through eighth- grade students from the area will start their day with a campus scavenger hunt and learn what college is like from coaches and athletes.  Afterward, they will attend the Dukes vs. St. Francis Red Flash women's basketball game. 

Students are encouraged to create posters recognizing the women's basketball team, and classes are urged to dress with school spirit, either for their school or for Duquesne.  Winners of these competitions will be recognized at the game and receive some great prizes.

The event is a collaboration between the School of Education and the Department of Athletics.
