                                       MADE DAY at ECU

East Carolina University invites students to join them Saturday, February 22, for Multicultural Appreciation Day Experience (MADE) at ECU. This opportunity will provide students with a rich multicultural campus experience as they explore student life at ECU. They will learn about planning for college, the admissions process, financial aid and scholarship opportunities. They can explore ECU’s Honors College, take a campus tour and discover career opportunities through our extensive offering of majors and concentrations. Learn more at go.ecu.edu/madeatecu. Students can register online.


SATELLITE is a five day STEM outreach and leadership development program with the goal of exposing high school sophomores across underserved communities in North Carolina to STEM careers and post-secondary educational opportunities. Students will have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of STEM activities including, but not limited to: a field trip to the Museum of Natural Sciences, an egg drop competition, and workshops in paper science engineering, textiles, and agriculture and life sciences led by NC State faculty and students. 

The program this year will run from May 9th through the 13th. The application requires two letters of recommendation and a few short essays pertaining to the student’s interest in STEM. Due to the nature of the program, the program does not consider a student’s academic success when reviewing applications. They are looking only for a student’s desire to maximize their experience at SATELLITE. The deadline to apply is February 28th, 2020. The program costs $30, but a limited number of need-based scholarships are available.
