On Tuesday, March 19th, our Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG) students embarked on an enriching journey to Southeastern Louisiana University (SLU) as part of a specialized college tour. Led by dedicated educators, our scholars delved into the realm of higher education, gaining invaluable insights into campus life, academic programs, and career pathways.

During their visit, our students were treated to a comprehensive tour of the SLU campus, immersing themselves in the vibrant atmosphere and distinctive features that define university life. From state-of-the-art facilities to bustling student hubs, they explored the diverse landscapes that make up the academic landscape of SLU.

Guided by knowledgeable staff and student ambassadors, our JAG scholars gained firsthand knowledge about the myriad areas of study available at SLU, empowering them to make informed decisions about their future academic pursuits. Additionally, they had the privilege of experiencing the culinary delights of the Mane Dish cafeteria, offering a taste of the dining options available to prospective students.

Equipped with a meticulously curated packet of university information and memorabilia, our students departed SLU with a deeper understanding of the collegiate experience and the resources available to support their academic journey. This transformative trip served as a catalyst for our scholars, igniting their passion for higher learning and reinforcing the mantra that “learning is worth it.”

As aptly stated by Mr. Riley, our esteemed JAG teacher, this excursion exemplifies Woodlawn High School’s unwavering commitment to providing unparalleled opportunities for academic and personal growth.
