Hundreds of students in two freshman orientation classes at Morgan State University had the privilege of asking alumni of the institution career-related questions of their choice in a 'Career Day' event hosted by members of the BLW Campus Ministry and Global Youth Leaders' Forum.
The event, which was initially intended to address 100 to 120 students in its pioneering edition, ended up reaching about 250 students when faculty members offered up their class period to the GYLF Regional Leader and Campus Ministry Maryland Coordinator, Brother Deji Olubusi. Students from different backgrounds, particularly engineering, had the opportunity to not only listen to a moderated question and answer session but also interact with the speakers.
Brother Deji and members of the GYLF and Campus Ministry persuaded 7 alumni of Morgan State University to take a half day off their jobs in order to avail students knowledge from their wealth of experience at IBM, Accenture, Northrop Grumman, Boeing, Honda, General Electric, the Mayor's Office, TEDCO and other organizations.
The 2-hour event presented a unique opportunity to seed the University and the future of America with professional development tools. Through the influence gained by reason of this event, more opportunities have been presented for the expansion of the Gospel at the institution.
