On behalf of St. Andrews, thank you for what you do to educate students and help them strive for their career goals!
St. Andrews University, a branch of Webber International University, has been around for over 120 years and we have the same goals and values in educating students. I would like to highlight a few ways we can partner with you:
Field Trips –We are located in Laurinburg, North Carolina on a 200 plus-acre lake-centered campus that is paired with a 300 plus-acre Equestrian Center. It would be our pleasure to host your groups for field trips to visit the university. Whether you want to bring student-athletes to check out our professional facilities, juniors and seniors that are in the college search mode, specific classes to do career exploration, or just about whatever fits your needs. We will gladly accommodate.
Classroom Presentations – Regional Admissions Counselors can travel to your school to meet with students or speak with them virtually. They are dynamic speakers and would gladly schedule to present in your classrooms on a variety of topics. Of course, we can present about what we do here at St. Andrews but we can also do specific presentations on career opportunities with the degrees we provide, educate them on the standard admissions process for most colleges, or can even create a presentation surrounding topics you need guests for.
Services for Administration, Guidance Counselor, and Teachers – No one knows how to stretch a budget like the education field, and if we can help you do so, we would love to. We could provide an off-campus meeting location for your staff, provide guest speakers for faculty development, and be able to assist with light catering needs for your meetings.
We would love the opportunity to build a stronger relationship with you either through these activities listed or through ideas that you may have. Please reach out to me to discuss how we can best assist you or to schedule an Admissions Counselor to visit your school. Again, thank you for the difference you are making in student’s lives.
