Springtime means the return of Girl University! Girl University is a one-day conference for girls in 8th through 12th grades and their parents, to help girls get an early start planning for life after high school. It is an opportunity for girls and their parents to come together with professionals to find answers in a fun and informative way. Offering over forty workshops for girls and parents, Girl University also features exhibit booths with information on college programs, including academic programs, financial aid and other community groups.
