Reviewers comments include, “Through this book I now have an insider’s view of what employers are looking for.” 

Troy-Brooks program will motivate Cheyney students to use their time more prudently and help them navigate the process of working toward their goals and dreams immediately. The event is scheduled from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Marcus Foster Student Center Auditorium on CU’s historic main campus. The program will include a reception and discussions, or Sister Circles, on topics such as health, womanhood, and education.

“This program is a celebration of women. The entire CU campus is welcome to learn and share in the sisterhood,” states Director of Student Activities, Ms. Sharon Thorn.

Troy-Brooks, an expert with 30 years of experience, has previously conducted workshops on etiquette at CU.   “My goal is to help CU students reach their dreams,” explains Troy-Brooks.  Formely the CEO of a Mid-Atlantic staffing firm and business school, she has made a strong commitment to helping others through volunteerism and philanthropy. 

The program will close this year’s  CU Women’s History Month celebration.  Established originally by President Jimmy Carter, Women’s History Month is a nationally recognized celebration of historical events involving women which affirms, remembers, retells, and analyzes the stories of the unsung heroines that have helped to shape America  and build our shared realities.

The Office of Student Activities is located in room 108 of the Marcus Foster Student Center and serves as catalyst to transform students into active members of the CU campus community. Specifically, it provides social, cultural and developmental programs and activities, organizational advisement, and a variety of services. These opportunities allow students to combine formal, in-class experiences and informal, extra-curricular activities to create a balanced environment.
