This event is an annual collaborative project of the FAMU Miami-Dade, Broward Alumni Chapters and THE HBCU SHUTTLE, Inc. We look forward to having our high school juniors, seniors and our Jr. college transfer students, to take part in the FAMU Fall preview and informational session. There will be workshops, a full campus tour, a meeting with department Deans, members of The FAMU Student Government Association and so much more. Students will also have lunch in the Cafe with current FAMU students. Parents are encouraged to attend and get valuable first-hand information. This event will enable our "newest Rattler's" to experience The Hill!!
This FAMU mini trip will enable students to apply for the Spring and Fall 2024 semesters. This is an awesome opportunity to get a clear vision on YOU on "the hill" and a member of the FAMUly. The Fall preview will enable each student (and parents) to see all that FAMU has to offer. Members of the South FL FAMU Alumni Chapters will serve as chaperones for this event.
Cost: $150.00 per student and $125.00 per adult. THERE IS NO OVER NIGHT STAY!
FAMU alumni will travel with students and assist them in completing the enrollment and/transfer process as they prepare for the next chapter of their academic journey.
