FCCLA and College Tours
I recently returned from a very cold trip to Chicago - the site of the 2010 FCCLA National Leadership Conference. This is a professional development meeting for all FCCLA state advisors, national staff, and this year, portions included the National Executive Council.
During this meeting, state advisors were treated to two special tours to educational institutions that support FCCLA programs and activities. Our first tour took place at the Illinois Institute of Art-Chicago. Admissions staff from the Institute gave us a first rate tour of all the facilities. Students in FCCLA and family and consumer sciences classes may be interested in some of these degree programs - Digital Filmmaking and Video Production, Digital Photography, Culinary Arts, Fashion Design, Interior Design, and Hospitality Management. (There are other degree programs as well).
Our second tour took place at Kendall College. FCCLA members may be interested in the Business, Culinary, Hospitality, Education and Psychology programs offered. During both tours, students were very willing to answer our questions and to share with us additional information about their postsecondary education.
There are many other colleges which support National FCCLA, including Johnson & Wales University. We're also fortunate to have the support of Missouri colleges and universities for programs such as STAR Events. (I'll highlight those in a future blog post.)
