Miami Dade College (MDC), in partnership with the Lumina Foundation, has launched its college completion project ¡HACER! and will host a special town hall event to discuss the importance of college attainment at 6 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 12, at the Wolfson Campus in downtown Miami. The event is free and open to the public.


¡HACER! Town Hall Kick-Off: Let’s Talk About College will offer 11th and 12th-grade high school students and their families the chance to learn about the importance of college completion. There are many great opportunities for getting ahead in life by pursuing a college degree, and it is easier and less expensive than most people think. This event will have an expert panel that will offer a wealth of information and answer important questions regarding college readiness and completion. There will also be a mini College-Knowledge Workshop provided for students and their families. These workshops will provide students with important information regarding the college process that they will need to be aware of during their junior and senior year of high school. The event will conclude with a free dinner for all attendees.
