ATLANTA, GA – Hispanic PR marketing shop Lanza Group, which last year created a festival around “Day of the Dead”, announced a new addition to their calendar of events with the creation of the University Expo Atlanta. The inaugural U Expo aims to bring high school students and their parents together with college admissions representatives to learn about future options, on Saturday, Jan. 23 at Gwinnett Place Mall.
“High school students face a lot of uncertainty, Hispanic students especially, about life after high school,” says Lanza Group President Ralph E. Herrera. “U Expo is for students to interact personally with colleges, and make decisions regarding their future.”
U Expo will have representatives from several colleges and universities from the state of Georgia, and other universities from around the country will be represented such as Emmanuel College of Boston, Massachusetts. Admissions representatives will be on hand to answer questions regarding admissions requirements, tuition and financial aid.
In addition to learning about the advantages of a college education, representatives can also aid in choosing a major, classes and ease the transition to college life. U Expo will also have a DJ on hand to entertain and give away prizes throughout the afternoon. The Atlanta Hawks and Thrashers will also be supporting this free family event.
U Expo has partnered with Coca-Cola, Telemundo, Mundo Hispanico and BB&T to bring this event to students. During the event, donations will be collected for the Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, to benefit those devastated by the earthquake in Haiti. U Expo will be held on Saturday, Jan. 23 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. in Gwinnett Place Mall, 2100 Pleasant Hill Rd; Duluth, GA, 30096.
