Annual Fall Events
Teacher Cadet College Day |  September 20, 2013

On College Day, Newberry College and the Department of Teacher Education welcome over 200 Teacher Cadets to campus from approximately 15 high schools in the Midlands and surrounding area.  During the day-long event, high achieving junior and senior Cadets enjoy campus tours, mock classes, small group time with admissions and financial aid officers, and interaction with Newberry College students and faculty.  Statistics show that 43% of students completing Teacher Cadets become teachers, so significant time will be devoted to discussions about licensure and teacher preparation, both in general and at Newberry College.  We welcome Cadets, their instructors, and parents to Newberry College!  For more information, please contact Lynn Dowd (Teacher Cadet Director) at  Current Cadets should click here to register for the 2013 College Day.
