HAMMOND – The Division of Extended Studies at Southeastern Louisiana University has extended
an early bird registration discount of $280 through May 10 for Zoom into Careers.
Held from June 17 – 20 on the main campus in Hammond, in Mandeville at the St Tammany Center, and in Walker at the Livingston Parish Literacy and Technology Center, Zoom into Careers offers 14 exciting career workshops that include Animation, Automotive, Criminal Justice, Culinary, Health Care, Industrial Technology and Engineering, Kinesiology, Movie Making, Photography, Radio, Television, Theatre, Web Design, and Welding.
"Zoom into Careers is a wonderful way for junior high and high school students to explore career opportunities and experience Southeastern's beautiful campus or regional locations- Mandeville and Walker," said Charlotte Collins, director of Zoom into Careers for Extended Studies. "Extended Studies decided to give parents extra time to make summer plans during this hectic period as school starts to wind down."
Thanks to generous sponsorships by Sheriff Jason Ard and the Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office for Zoom into Criminal Justice and AllStar Automotive, along with a partnership with the Northshore Community and Technical College, for Zoom into Automotive in Walker and Greensburg, the tuition for these workshops has been reduced to $55 for the four day workshop, added Collins.
Zoom workshops are hands-on, using the latest technology in specialized labs to create an interactive experience in the career field of choice. Participants can receive a glimpse into college life with the overnight option in Southeastern's dorms which are offered to high school students participating in workshops on the main campus.
On-line registration and workshop details are available at www.southeastern.edu/zoom. For more information, contact Extended Studies at 800-256-2771, 985-549-2301 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
