Re: Culture Pathway for Future Students

To fully engage Hispanic audiences in the learning process, particular attention should be given to gaining and maintaining trust. Greater acceptance of educational efforts will occur by learners if Hispanic community leaders are involved in the planning, delivery, and evaluation of these educational efforts. Be aware that the physical distance between Hispanics when holding a conversation is much closer than in other cultures. Exhibiting respect for learners is another important aspect of the Hispanic culture. Teachers need to pay individual attention to learners (e.g., greeting each learner, handing papers to each individual rather than passing them down the row, being sensitive to different cultures among Hispanics, writing educational materials at appropriate reading levels). Differences in educational levels, language skills, income levels, and cultural values among Hispanics need to be considered by Extension educators when planning educational programs. Even though Hispanics share the same language, their cultures may vary considerably.

After studies and research, Queens can attract culturally diverse students by having a better understanding of the culture background. Some ways to help bridge them into the Queens family would be by going out in the Hispanic community with the present or past students, showing the success they have accomplished at a university giving attention to the growing culture here in Charlotte.

Another way to improve communications is within the Queens website. The website has international connections because we have students that study abroad, report on what they have successfully done, but unless we expose our connections we have to the outside world, most future or prospective students will only think we have classes with semi educators that would understand them. They may only feel that the educators can’t give them what they need to succeed at a one city based university.

If Queens wants to be prominent and prestigious in its different fields of education, with a large cultural group to represent them, then we can’t assume that word of mouth or just local networking will work effectively as needed for the culture trends, etiquettes growing in our city. We needs to invest in local TV commercials if possible in the Spanish culture states where heavy immigration is sprouting so they visual see what Queens is about to every culture, not just the American culture.

In conclusion, We need to be visual and not assume that we’ve done enough. Queens in Charlotte has the name that represents a royal standard. Let’s make it internationally global with the success stories and successful students throughout the country.

Nursing

Major Salary, Salary Trend, Satisfaction, Unemployment Average

I have been at Queens for my 5th year now. I am both a psych and nursing major though the nurisng department is highly unorganized and does not seem to really care about their students, but instead about their accredidation and the fact that you are a number to them. Granted not the whole faculty in the nursing department are like this, there are alot of faculty that just dont seem to be tremendously helpful at a time when you truely need them. Oh yea and the fact that they now have a no fail policy so if you dont pass your class you have to appeal to try to get back in to the program to finish and if you dont pass a second course there is pretty much no hope of you getting back in and so then there is thousands of dollars wasted and no degree!!! Truely the Dean of the nursing department is not compassionate or sympathetic towards anything and only cares about policies and hardly anything about the students which are in his program….I would highly recommend trying to find somewhere else to pursue a nursing degree, because thsi program is just simply unorganized and not very supportive in their students!!!

If you play a sport, or are actively involved in school clubs/spirit to the extreme, you will be likely to find a social group. I’ve been at this school for almost 4 months, and find myself fitting in less and less. Majority of the people, even the ones who pride themselves on being open minded and enthusiastic on meeting new people and experiences, are not genuine. Most people won’t even look at you when you’re walking through campus, unless maybe you have a class with them. Socially, this school is absolutely awful. I have never been an anti-social type of person, but I’ve become very quiet and reserved, and it’s NOT by choice. Queens students, loosen up a bit!!As for academies, there’s nothing special. They do have a good nursing program, which I hear is extremely hard, but quite rewarding. And business isn’t too shabby either. However, all other majors aren’t anything special. Their CORE classes that they claim is “inventive” and “sets them apart” is a big old pile of bullshit (excuse the language..) There is nothing new, or exciting about it. It’s way too much work, all of which is busy-work, and I guarantee you will not gain anything from this class. Why do we go to college? To help further our education, which will help us get better jobs. This class does absolutely nothing to help your future..NOTHING. Perceived Campus Safety: A-, Individual Value: F

Consumer Post: Queens Doesn’t Give its Students Royal perspective but have a Royal Cost.

I am a PROSPECTIVE student here in the Charlotte area. I have a deep interest in the Majors and Minors that the school offers but the tuition is extremely high. I work downtown so the traffic for getting here by 6pm is extremely hard. I am an older adult and would like to attend based on the reputation itself, but please find a way to encourage me that this is the best school for the convenience, cost and educational experience. What sets you apart from the rest when the others that have seemed to have an answer, or solution for my concerns?

Thanks,

Inspired, Intense, but not totally Convinced

Dear Inspired, Intense, but not totally convinced,

We here at Queens offer a very wide variety of Majors and Minors in order to allow our non-traditional adult students a new choice in education whereas most schools only offer Business Administration or Business Management. We know all too well that most adults enter into the corporate arena for personal luxuries or future goals. You will have the opportunity to excel with smaller classes, expert teachers, and a challenging atmosphere. We want our students to have a change in life to pursue what they “really” want to do with satisfactory results. Our goal is to allow you to become the NEW YOU.

We are currently working on a new way to conveniently be less burdensome to those prospective adult students working in the downtown Charlotte area, but our beautiful campus is located in the historic area of Charlotte. If for some reason the commute is non-adaptable, please consider the hybrid and online classes for your convenience in pursuant of your degree.

The cost of a great education in evitable. Some institutions are higher than others, but if your research allowed you to find out how royal we are in reputation and class, then allow us to make you apart of the Royal family here at Queens University. www.queens.edu/joinus.com

Be encouraged and not discouraged. Our staff is completely ready and willing to assist you with a new start, a new journey, and a new beginning.

Thank you,

After researching the examples above, Queens can attract culturally diverse students by having a better understanding of the culture background. Some ways to help bridge them into the Queen family would be by going out in the Hispanic community with the present or past students, showing the success they have accomplished at a university giving attention to the growing culture here in Charlotte. with cultural language.
