Q&A session today for prospective students

By Laurie D. Willis
Livingstone College News Service
Are you a high school junior or senior?
Are you interested in attending college?
If you answered yes to one or both of those questions, a Q&A session being held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. today in the Walls Center at Livingstone College could benefit you.
The question-and-answer session is being sponsored by the Livingstone College SIFE Team. SIFE, or Students in Free Enterprise, is an international, nonprofit organization that works with leaders in business and higher education to mobilize college students to make a difference in their communities while developing skills necessary to become socially responsible business leaders, according to the organizationís website. Participating students form teams at their campuses and apply business concepts to develop outreach projects that improve the quality of life and standard of living for people in need.
Recently, as part of their community service, Livingstone College SIFE Team members talked to pupils at East Spencer Head Start about the importance of saving money. But tonight, the focus is on much older students who will soon be headed to college.
The event is designed to arm high school students and their parents with useful information about college. Everything from how to apply to college to how to obtain financial aid to rules about repaying student loans will be discussed.
ěLivingstone Collegeís SIFE Team has organized this question-and-answer session because we recognize there are many high school students in the Salisbury-Rowan area who may have questions about applying for college and financial aid,î said Anitra Kelly, SIFE Team vice president. ěAttending college is a really big decision, and we just want to ensure we arm students and their parents with valuable information so they can make the right choices. The college application process, and especially financial aid forms, can be a bit intimidating. We want to make it less intimidating and help our area high school students begin the process.î
The event is being held in the food court at the Walls Center. There is no charge for admission, and light refreshments will be served.
For more information, call Kelly at 704-216-6827.
