The date has been set and now so has the itinerary for the 4th Annual Beyond U – Union's annual College and Career Preparedness Conference for seniors.
More than 1,000 seniors will board buses and participate in Beyond U at OSU-Tulsa, 700 N. Greenwood, in downtown Tulsa on Tuesday, October 25. Beyond U will start at the High School and then move beyond Union to the campus of OSU-Tulsa downtown (Oklahoma State University.) This one-day event provides seniors the opportunity to attend breakout sessions of their choosing on a variety of topics related to college, careers, and successful “adulting.”
With more than 40 different sessions being offered, seniors will be able to choose four sessions that are relevant and interesting to them. Seniors are required to attend. All Tulsa Technology Center students will be excused from Tulsa Tech classes.
Examples of past session topics included: College Academics 101, Financial Aid, The College Social Scene, Cracking Your Career Code, Art in the Digital Age, Enlisting in the Military, Your Digital Footprint, Social Justice, Stress Management and Self-Care, various career interest sessions (medicine, skilled trades, cosmetology, engineering, social work, performing arts, etc.), and much more.
This year’s featured speaker will be Shagah Zakerion, a graduate of Union High School.
Juniors will work from home that day as a planned virtual learning day. Sophomores will be involved with Pre-ACT.
