Multicultural Night at Columbia Basin College

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.-- This informational meeting gives students and parents the chance the learn more about financial aid, and how to enroll in classes. Over the last six years more than 2,000 Hispanics have attended the event.

This is the first year CBC is welcoming Hispanic first generation college students and their parents, as well as other minorities.

More than anybody the Vice President of Diversity and Outreach at CBC knows how important it is to get some help from the community.

"I was a first generation minority student and I had to kind of figure it out on my own, now my siblings have the availability of the sibling that went to college and explain to them what they need to be doing," said Cruz Gonzalez, Vice President of Diversity and Outreach at CBC.

Multicultural Night will be happening Thursday January 24th, from 6:00p.m. to 8:00p.m., in the Gjerde Center at CBC. This event is free and you don't have to reserve a spot in advance. 

This year they hope up to 400 students attend. There will also be $3500 in scholarships awarded to four lucky students.
