Academic Achievers Host SAWS Externship Seminar

Sept. 19, 2011


alt On Thursday, September 15 the Academic Achievers Program partnered with the Belk Professional Development Center to host an externship seminar.

Various former externs presented to the freshmen on the benefits of an externship and their professional growth and development through the Belk Center. The student speakers implored freshmen to utilize the Belk Center and the various opportunities available to them.

Nichole Lewis, Director of the Belk Professional Development Center stated, "By seeing what others in their peer group have been able to accomplish toward a career path in just one year, it opens up the possibilities in an individual's mind who may not have a supporting corner in this fight called life and certainly in this journey called college. The Class of 2015 t-shirts say "What's Your Next?". Yesterday's presentations are almost a tangible response to that question."
