FUTURES

"For I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11

Invest in college. Succeed in life. Those are some of our goals for you as a Northwestern student, and that's why you're invited to participate in FUTURES, a program for first- and second-year students with Latino, African American, Native American, Asian or mixed racial heritage. FUTURES offers you:

  • A pre-orientation retreat before the school year starts where you can start building relationships with other students who are making the Northwestern College journey with you.

  • Workshops where you'll be offered practical advice for succeeding socially, academically and spiritually in college (topics include time management, study skills, career planning, college budgeting, and campus involvement and leadership)

  • Meaningful relationships with peer and faculty mentors as well as a local host family.

  • The opportunity to be involved in campus life and make your unique contribution to a vibrant, diverse campus culture.

  • A vision for your future that inspires you to use your time in college as preparation for both a fulfilling career and a faithful life.

In addition, FUTURES participation offers you a chance to attend the National Conference on Race and Ethnicity and may earn you points that translate to cash for books, meals, learning trips or a Kindle or iPad.

Invest in your future by giving yourself every advantage, starting now.
