US University Mini Fair
“The best way to predict the future is to create it.”-Abraham Lincoln
Career decisions play a pivotal role in shaping the future growth and development of students. In today’s environment of multiple options, knowing about choices available helps children in their decision-making process. A ‘US University Mini Fair’ was organised by KDAV for the students and parents of classes 9 to 12 on Friday, 10 January 2020 with the objective of helping the students to design their higher studies and exploring a range of options that can open new vistas for them. Principal, Mrs. Anvita Kackar and Vice Principal, Mr. Manas Chatterjee graced the occasion.
16 US universities participated in it: The University of South Florida, Miami University, Colorado State University, University of Oregon, University of Kansas, University of Cincinnati , Wayne State University, Youngstown State University, Foothill & Deanza College, Wright State University, Lehigh University, Tiffin University , Pittsburg State University, University of Arizona, University of California – Irvine, University of Tennessee – Knoxville. Representatives of these universities put up their stalls at RSCC lawn to guide the visiting students and parents.
Parents turned up in great number and tried to gather information for their wards’ better future. The Universities’ delegates shared the information about their various programmes, scholarships, admission criteria, documentations, campus life, environment, CPT, OPT, expenses, Visa, accommodation, etc. Our students used this opportunity to clarify doubts and absorb fresh perspectives regarding new career options such as Artificial Intelligence, Exploratory Studies, Substance Abuse Counselling, Biomedical Engineering, Electric Transportation Technology, Molecular Genetics and Genomics, Biomedical Physics, Toxicology and Risk Assessment etc. The fair highlighted upon the new avenues of learning for the students.
In a nutshell it was an enriching and informative experience for all.
