TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Happening Saturday, Tucson's largest school district and Pima Community College are hosting ‘Parent University'.

The goal is to get families thinking about opportunities in higher learning now.  More than 600 Tucson Unified students and parents, grandparents or guardians from all over the Tucson area already are pre-registered for the weekend event.

It's all about getting students, from kindergarten through high school and their parents thinking about pathways to college; how to make it a reality for kids, who might just be the first generation to go to college.

Saturday's event at PCC's West Campus will have workshops focused on topics like financial aid and getting into college. This year's theme is ‘Changing lives, building community'.  It is never too early to start planning for college.

If planning to attend tomorrow, but have not registered yet, walk-ins are welcome.  Registration begins at 8 a.m. with the event taking place from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the PCC West Campus on Anklam Rd. near Greasewood. 

The event is free and lunch is provided.
