Spring Break - ahhh, a time of all play and no work. A time to rejoice in surviving mid-terms and cut loose before coming back to buckle down and finish out the school year.
Two groups of Fort Valley State University students will spend their spring break representing their school on whirlwind tours. The concert choir is traveling the Eastern Seaboard from Atlanta to New York, with a performance at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. To say the campus is proud of this group might be an understatement.
The high-energy Wildcat Force will be touring with university officials, including Dr. Rivers, to high schools throughout the state The tour is the brainchild of Dr. Rivers, who sought a unique way to introduce high school students to FVSU. At each stop, the 12-member Force performs, President Rivers speaks, and recruiters tell the students how to apply to FVSU.
What does it say about the university that so many of our students are lining up to spend their spring break not lying on a beach or partying in Daytona, but spreading the massage that FVSU is the place to be? Good things, I think.
