Last week 40 IDEA seniors traveled to Bowie State University to tour campus and engage in a panel discussion with current Bowie State students. The trip was IDEA's kickoff event for OSSE's DC College Application and Exploration Month.
IDEA alum Quantraz Brown provided an overview of his experience as a freshman at Bowie. He discussed being a digital media major and talked about his class schedule and the academic supports he’s taken advantage so far at college.
Mr. Bowie State University Roland Reynolds shared an intimate story about his experiences, struggling with being responsible and battling aggression towards others. His ability to surmount the barriers that stood in the way of his success truly resonated with our students.
Special thanks to Bowie State University alum and IDEA history teacher Marecya Burton for planning and organizing the panel discussion and meet and greet with the men’s basketball coach.
