  • Accessibility to faculty and staff is what attracted me the most .

    NoravoNNe JohNsoN 11

    noravonneJoHnSonknew exactly what she was looking for when she was considering where to go to college . Coming from a small high school, as well as town, I wanted to attend a university in which I would be known by name and get the educa-tion that I really need . Having the opportunity to have a one-on-one relationship with professors is a plus . Without direct communication, its impossible to accomplish something to the best of your ability . At FSU, Noravonne has accomplished a lot .

    FSU helped prepare me for the future because of discussions Ive had with so many faculty and staff, the community service Ive performed, and the opportunity the university gave me to work with the govern-ment . Noravonne has been a Bronco Ambassador, volunteered with Admissions, the Business Office, and the Fayetteville Bicycle Man (which donates bikes to needy children), and represented the Honors Program to the FSU Board of Trustees to help raise university funds . While attending FSU, she was also on a full academic scholarship .

    Noravonne interned as a legal administrative support assistant at the United States Army John F . Kenney Special Warfare Center and School in Fort Bragg, NC . Currently, she is pursuing a Masters of Business Administration and continues her internship with the federal government .

    Noravonne networked a lot while she was at FSU . She believes that shaped her into a more involved individual . Future, she states that I see myself working as a permanent government employee . Im very interested in becoming a management analyst, analyzing and propos-ing ways to improve an organizations structure, efficiency, or profits . Its a major challenge, but Im up for it .

    traviSHarriS is a recent FSU graduate who has his vision set on graduate school and eventually owning his own accounting firm . But his passion and his future are about much more than just

    numbers . I believe in the motto Lifting as I climb . This is the motto of the National Association of Black Accountants, which I belong to . I definitely believe in making a difference .

    Maybe thats one reason he was selected as Mr . Fayetteville State University his junior year . While at FSU, Travis proved his commitment to community engagement with his involvement in campus leadership as well as service activities that benefited local public school students . Travis served as an active member on the Student Activities Council, the Cultural Programs Committee and for his fraternity, Alpha Phi Alphaa service organization founded in 1906 and the first intercol-legiate black Greek organization in the country . I really expanded my horizons . I wanted to experience a lot of things . They drive that into you during orientation . I wanted to make the best of my experience here and leave a part of me to the next generation of students .

    Travis, who is from Hempstead, New York, took advantage of out-standing internship opportunities as well . During a paid internship on Wall Street, he reviewed and wrote contracts, and helped organize a conference, which involved managing hospitality arrangements for 250 students . And while representing a group called the Young Professionals, Travis also spent a week in Chicago for the N
