Communications Academy students involved in Nease’s Digital Design program spent the morning at Florida State College at Jacksonville, touring the South Campus and learning more about what their future might hold. During their tour, students had the chance to see the student athletic facilities and gym, the library, the student life center, and the fine arts building.
In the arts building, students learned more about the fine and performing arts programs at FSCJ, and got to see some student work.
Following the tour, the students were led into a computer lab where they logged into FSCJ’s Career Coach online program. The students answered questions about themselves and then received personalized career profiles.
These profiles were linked to possible career paths and included information on necessary degrees and starting salaries. Our tour guides led the students through a game called “College or No College,” in which students guessed whether certain job titles needed a post-secondary degree, and guessed whether or not several celebrities had college degrees. Finally, the group discussed what is typically required to apply to college: a GPA, test scores, community service hours, and high school transcripts. And finally, took a tour through the school bookstore, student cafe, and past the student advising office.
