CANCELED: A Parent Night will be held at Win-E-Mac on October 22, 2013, at 7 p.m. in the Win-E-Mac Media Center. It will host all 10th - 12th grade parents and students. Parent Night is an opportunity for parents to learn more about the financial, social, and academic aspects of attending a post-secondary institution.

Background
Achieve More emerged from the regional IMPACT 20/20 Education Task Force's priority initiative to increase high school graduation rates and encourage more students, at an earlier age, to consider attending college. Launched in Fall 2012, the project is an effort among UMC's Center for Adult Learning (CAL). Achieve More consists of two major components, College and Career Preparation 101, aimed at grades 7‐12, and Junior Achievement, which targets grades 2-6. 

Today the University of Minnesota Crookston delivers 28 bachelor's degree programs, 20 minors, and 39 concentrations on campus--as well as 11 degrees online--in the areas of agriculture and natural resources; business; liberal arts and education; and math, science and technology.  With an enrollment of 1,800 undergraduates from 25 countries and 40 states, the Crookston campus offers a supportive, close-knit atmosphere that leads to a prestigious University of Minnesota degree.  "Small Campus. Big Degree."  To learn more, visit www.umcrookston.edu.
