Minority students had an opportunity to get a jump start on their college careers this weekend in Wilmington. High school students visited the many booths and workshop sessions offered at Union Missionary Baptist Church Saturday. More than twenty universities were on hand to lend advice. The goal of the program was to encourage students to think early about applying to college, student life and financial aid. "I want to stay on top of it, because I don't want to wait until the last minute. A lot of financial aid goes quickly, and a lot of opportunities if I want to find the right school. I have to start early, so I don't feel rushed," said Keisha Cousins, a high school junior. The college day gave the students time to learn more about the college application process.
