College Round Up A Success At Edgecombe Community College

Bringing high school seniors together with recruiters from historically black colleges.

That was the goal of the 8th annual College Roundup at Edgecombe Community College Saturday.

Recruiters from 20 colleges met face to face with potential students looking into the possibility of higher education.

The roundup was a chance for students to apply for admission and in some cases get accepted on the spot.

All admission fees were waived Saturday, as part of a larger goal that academic leaders say is simply creating an awareness.

In addition to college recruiters and admission staff from 20 colleges, there were financial aid officials on hand as well explaining their processes for getting the funds to pay for college.

    The College Round-Up is for all students, regardless of race. White, hispanic, and asian students have also attended and been accepted to these colleges. Not everyone discriminates. It is a lot easier and a lot nicer not to discriminate.

    Way to go T! If it were for White only it would be the NAACP and the SCLU and the ACLU and the Southern Poverty League and all the white haters and politically correct morons calling a foul! I am so sick of the media not covering Native American College events and there are some. I am tired of the whining people who are oppressed by us white people whining about everything that does not go their way. The Civil Rights march has ended. It is time to move on and get along and try to be a better country. We cannot do this till some blacks like Oprah,and Jesse Jackson and Farrakhan, and Al Sharpton get a life and do the RIGHT THING! These people are bigots and they are the reason we cannot get along! The democratic party is the ones who also help the blacks believe in free programs like welfare and that they cannot live on their own with out the big government handouts.I was raised that I am responsible for My Actions and no others.I am supposed to be dependent on no others.Work and rest

    Why only for the black kids? There are plenty of poor white kids in Edgecombe county, but you wouldn't know it from the news.
