Students and Families Connect with JCSU on Admitted Day
Prospective students enjoyed a preview of JCSU on May 19 during Admitted Day, an event held to acquaint 151 students, parents and families with the nuts and bolts of entering the college experience. Since many incoming freshmen at Johnson C. Smith are the first generation in their families to attend college, the event provided essential information and assurance needed for both students and their families to realize that higher education is affordable and attainable.
Dr. Ronald L. Carter and his administrative and academic teams welcomed both groups to campus and shared “What JCSU can do for you.” The day offered two sessions – one for students and one for parents and families. The students divided into two groups and rotated between sessions covering advising and registration, residence life, financial aid, student services, ending with campus tours. They had an opportunity for social interaction with other incoming students at a cookout on the Block at the end of the day.
While the students were learning about college life their parents took a one-hour tour of Charlotte and the Historic West End. Then they came back to campus to hear from financial aid counselors, student affairs, campus police as well from current JCSU students. A technology showcase in the MACMAS lab presented information about JCSU as the 4th most connected college in the nation.
During Admitted Day, 109 students registered for the fall semester and left better prepared and excited to begin their first semester as a Golden Bull at JCSU.Return to Latest News
