The CSSS college tour returned after a five-year hiatus and the Tribe’s Center for Student Success and Services (CSSS) staff said it was a success.
The July 29 to Aug. 2 tour took 20 students across Florida by bus to visit Florida A&M University, Florida State University, University of Florida, University of Central Florida and Full Sail University.
The group also visited the State Capitol building in Tallahassee; made a pit stop for a little bit of fun at Universal Studios in Orlando; met with higher education students who were Tribal members; and attended presentations by university staff on admission requirements.
CSSS staff who went on the tour included Melissa Forges, Keivon Bell, Cynthia Mills, Mayra Beraza and Tiawannah Calhoun.
In the future, CSSS acting director Alvaro Perez said the department would consider possible tours outside of the state as well, including at various Tribal colleges and universities around the country.
