Save the Date for PUSH 2012 and Transfer Day!
North Carolina Central University’s Centennial Scholars Program/African American Male Initiative invites you to save the date for the second annual Propelling Undergraduate Students Higher (PUSH) Symposium that has now been expanded to cover two days. In addition, transfer students interested in attending NCCU are invited to the pre-conference Transfer Day sessions where they will learn more about what it takes to be an NCCU Eagle. The Transfer Day will kick off on Friday, Nov. 30, at 10 a.m. and the PUSH Symposium will follow at noon and run through Saturday, Dec. 1, at 2 p.m.
The PUSH Symposium is aimed at minority males from high schools, community colleges, and student athletes from four-year universities. Details are still being finalized, but the many concurrent sessions will feature relevant topics including:
Reshaping Professional Athlete Dreams Living Away from Home Self-Branding Dressing for Success Transitions through College Men’s Health Embracing Diversity Knowing Yourself Transferring to a Four-Year Institution Peer Pressure Hip Hop in Higher Education Religion and Spirituality Stress Management Financial Literacy Legal Rights Domestic Violence Awareness
In addition, admissions representatives from NCCU will accept applications and waive the application fee.
Detailed conference information will soon be available. Dinner on Friday, and breakfast and lunch on Saturday will be provided. There is no cost to attend, but only the first 175 students and chaperones who register will be accepted. A waiting list will be available to those who register after the limit is reached. Registrations must be completed at http://pushsymposium2012.eventbrite.com by November 18.
