It’s that time of year again…College Commitment Day 2017 that is! For those of you who don’t know, over 2,500 students across the Hampton Roads region commit by May 1st which college they will attend in the fall. Jpixx partnered with Rubin Communications Group and Access College Foundation to cover the event at the Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk, VA. We got some amazing photos and video so keep your eyes peeled for that.
Access College Foundation advisors guide students as they apply for college, file for financial aid, scholarships and walk them through the college application process. For some, they are the first in their families to attend college.
College Commitment Day is basically one big celebration for students committing to college and their future. They even gave away SIX scholarships at the event. Shaggy from Z104 emcee’d the event again this year and got the party started off right! Big shout out to the sponsors Old Dominion University, Norfolk State University, Virginia Tech, Virginia State University, University of Mary Washington, J&A Racing and Signature Wealth Advisors.
