Record-breaking Phuture Phoenix visits

Get ready. It’s going to be a record-breaking year for Phuture Phoenix visits Oct. 13-14 with about 1,500 fifth-graders headed to campus. The goal of Phuture Phoenix is to inspire academic success and promote post-secondary education in students from disadvantaged and underrepresented backgrounds, and the number of students has increased by about 350 students this year. The students will be wearing safety green shirts, student role models cardinal red, volunteers white and faculty and staff will be wearing forest green.
