Students from Wilmer-Hutchins, Lincoln, James Madison, and Franklin D. Roosevelt were given the opportunity to learn first-hand about Florida A&M University’s academic and extracurricular offerings through the FAMU: Next Generation Connect with Dallas ISD Day. Dallas ISD Trustee Lew Blackburn and the Dallas/Fort Worth FAMU Alumni Association hosted the event.
This information session was a way of bringing the college experience to the high school level. FAMU faculty and alumni were available to provide students with information about academic qualifications for admission, prerequisites for academic programs, and professional career paths. Armed with such knowledge, students will be able to make an educated decision on whether they can see themselves as a student at Florida A&M University.
“Today we want to make sure you are educated about all of the possible college and university choices available to you,” Blackburn said. “We are excited to have a Historically Black College/University (HBCU), like FAMU, visit and share information about their degree programs and potential scholarship opportunities.”
