I read this book in one night. Interesting details inside. It had an undertone of promoting Historically Black Colleges. But it also had savvy tips for people of color.


Here are some of the colleges they are showcasing:

Alcorn State.

Mississippi Valley State

Savannah State.

Coppin State University

Dillard University

Clark Atlanta University

Bowie State University

West Virginia State University

Jackson State University

Virginia Union

Prairie View A& M

Texas Southern

Fisk

Florida A&M

North Carolina A&T State University

Lincoln University

Cheyney University


Take a look, you could be pleasantly surprised. Affordability is a "real" factor. And there has been a resurgence of interest in these schools.

But go buy the book, worth a good read!


See you next week.

Cornell College welcomed 10 new faculty members for the academic year. Their expertise includes math, biology, Spanish, elementary education, and more.

The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (NACAC)


Hello,

Thank you for stopping by the Creative UK Booth at the NACAC Conference in Baltimore. I hope you had an enjoyable and successful conference. I’m writing to re-connect, and to inform you of some upcoming events which may be of interest to you and your students.

The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA) is a small, specialist provider of creative and performing arts courses. Co-founded by Sir Paul McCartney, who remains our Lead Patron, we teach across Acting, Applied Theatre, Dance, Filmmaking, Management, Music, Musical Theatre, Performance Design, Production Technology and Sound Technology. Together, we make performance possible. Our 1,000 students work together, as they would in the industry to create and stage over 50 productions per year. Roughly 25% of our students come from outside of the UK, representing over 40 countries worldwide. Between 5% and 7% of our student population is from the USA.

The city of Liverpool has an international reputation as a cultural hub. More museums, galleries, and listed buildings than any UK city outside of London, the city is also England’s only UNESCO City of Music and listed in The Guiness Book of Records as the ‘World Capital of Pop’. It is also a favourite film industry location, a digital and design city and a festival city.

Virtual Open House

On Friday, November 3 we will host our live virtual Open House event. Please do encourage any interested students to register here.

US based auditions and interviews

We are now accepting applications for 2024 entry either through our website or via UCAS. All our courses require an audition or portfolio and interview as part of the selection process. Our USA auditions and interviews for September 2024 entry are open only to those who have pre-applied in advance and are scheduled for January and February 2024. More details can be found on the international section of our website.

Ryan
