Shadow Day

Shadow Day is an initiative of Seymour Elementary School and University College Dean, Bethaida Gonzalez, to get children thinking about college early.

This year Shadow Day will be held Friday, April 22, 2016. If interested in volunteering please fill the below form out.  If you have any questions please contact Carrie McDonald at camcdo01@uc.syr.edu or 315-443-3292.
