La Trobe University (Bendigo campus) and Raising Expectations invite you to start your journey to higher education by spending a day on campus!

Are you in high school? Come along to this free, fun event with your carer, teacher, parent or supporter. Hear from our keynote speaker Brittany Witnish, Youth Advisor at the Commission of Children and Young People and Young Leader at the Centre for Excellence in Child and Family Welfare, about her pathway to university. You will also hear from current and past uni students from diverse backgrounds, including out-of-home care, about their experiences getting to university and succeeding.
