VA Tech would like to go ahead and have an activity on Nov. 20th, but with a smaller group. The group will be students that VT would like for us to call, who have already expressed interest and are strong student with a good chance in getting into VT.
I have reserved the library on the 2nd floor of the Norfolk Health Dept. Bldg. We expect the group to be about 20-25 students(parents), who will actually be able to come out.
Please contact me if you can help, with the calling. With the SATs on Dec. 4th, Exams starting on Dec. 10, we will need to focus on the spring for a large admission event. And plan for the fall of 2005, to participate with local high school college fairs, which are mainly in Oct. timeframe.
Can I get some alumni to plan to call students this week. Tech will provide us a list of names, similar to the list we got back in the spring. Need about 5 volunteers that can call about 6-10 students each. And we can include a few students that you know who might be interested in VT. The Admission Office will provide us some key things to say to the student and/or parent.

11:00-Engineering optional program
11:30-Noon Admissions process
Noon-12:30 Financial Aid: PCEG/MAOP
12:30-1:30: lunch with Black alumni and students(Pizza, etc.)
