Recruiting new students to our University is one thing that’s a real treat for us. We are able to travel to a multitude of great places to educate people about Jackson State University. We’ve travelled to every state in the country, and normally get to build relationships with people not only in High Schools and Junior Colleges, but people outside of those institutions as well.
Take for instance our recent trip down to The Woodlands, just outside of Houston. We went to Woodlands High School just off Research Drive in The Woodlands, TX to give the administration there some more information about our University, and see if we could speak with some of their seniors about coming down to see JSU.
We were met at Houston Intercontinental Airport by a young man named Colan Walker, who owns Limos of the Woodlands. You can see Colan’s website here: www.limosofthewoodlands.com. Colan has a son named Mike who attends Woodlands High and is going into his senior year, and coincidentally is looking at colleges to attend. Mike hasn’t yet made a decision on his choice of college to attend, so we took the opportunity to educate Colan on his son’s choices.
When we speak with students about their options, we want to make it clear that any University that they attend will offer them the opportunity to receive a great education, but that they need to put in the work to get what they want out of it! Most of the time, College Freshmen don’t know what to expect, thus when they get to experience University life, most are not ready for the rigors of what lays before them.
The questions that come out of our recruiting trips are often a variation of the below:… Click to Read More
