“College or University 101: The United States System” workshop Jan. 26



PHILIPSBURG – Student Support Services Division (SSSD) of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Youth and Sports Affairs is organizing a free workshop entitled “College or University 101: The United States System” on Thursday, January 26.

This will be held at SSSD’s office from 5:00pm to 6:00pm, which is located in the Amigo Building, across from the Police Station and next to the Windward Islands Bank (WIB) in Philipsburg.

Students in their last two years of secondary school or recent graduates who are interested in studying in the United States of America (USA), and their parents, are invited to attend this free and interactive workshop, which aims to ensure that attendants walk away with a better understanding of the US college and university educational system.

The workshop will cover aspects from the first year, where key differences in comparison to our own educational system need to be addressed, to the last year of college or university. Some social aspects will also be addressed.

Persons interested in attending this workshop on January 26, are urged to contact SSSD at phone: +1721-543‐1235 to reserve a spot, since space is limited. Persons are also urged to be on time since this will minimize interruptions.
