As a component of the Viking Success College & Career Program, forty-five college bound Vikings recently visited Shawnee State University and were treated to an immersive look at many different majors, classrooms, and labs. Vikings met several faculty, some of the SSU students, and got to experience several different aspects of learning from a look at how lungs function, to doing manipulatives to solve math equations, to getting to examine a real human cadaver! The Vikings were very excited about all the possibilities for learning that are taking place on Shawnee State's campus, and many intend to apply to SSU during their senior year. Many thanks to Tena Pierce, the SSU Admissions Rep who arranged this visit, to the SSU students who escorted our groups and shared their own stories, to the many professors who shared their professional time and expertise to help the Vikings explore the possibilities at SSU. This was a wonderful day of learning and exploration on the Shawnee State University campus!
This campus visit was made possible through a grant from the General Mills Foundation. Thank you, General Mills!
