HAMMOND – Early bird registration has been extended for “Zoom into Career Workshops,” where junior high and high school students can explore the exciting fields of culinary arts, inventing, photography and television at Southeastern Louisiana University June 20 – 23.
Students can take advantage of a discounted rate of $280 if they register by May 13. After the deadline, the price goes up to $295.
“Because the early registration deadline occurred during the week most students were on spring break,” explained Vice President of Extended Studies Joan Gunter, “we elected to extend the early registration date by two weeks.”
Workshops will be open to all 7-12 grade students and are scheduled on the main campus in Hammond and at Southeastern’s St. Tammany Center in Mandeville. The workshops feature a number of professionals who will instruct the students in various career paths.
“The workshops are career specific,” said Gunter. “Students work in teams, just as they would in real work environments. Upon completion, each will have a finished product for portfolios or to share with family and friends.”
Registration is available online at www.selu.edu/zoom. Housing will be available to high school students at the main campus.
“To provide a quality learning experience, registration will be limited in each workshop category to small groups. To ensure participation, interested students need to register early,” Gunter said.
