BET's Reality Series Comes to UVI

UVI students this is your
chance. Your chance for national
exposure. Your chance to show
the world what being a UVI stu-
dent is all about. And your chance
to represent the Caribbean to the
fullest. "College Hill," BET's acclaimed reality series, will base
it fourth season at the University of the Virgin Islands. Pro-
duced in collaboration with Edmonds Entertainment, "College
Hill" captures the essence of a select group of multicultural
students attending a Historically Black College or University
(HBCU) and documents their lifestyle as they interact on and
off campus.
"College Hill" is looking for UVI students 18 years of age
and older who have distinct personalities, are expressive and
who stand out in social settings to be part of the season's
eight-person cast. The selected cast will live together in an

off-campus location on St. Thomas. Two, four-person film
crews will shoot the day-to-day interactions of the students at
the home, on campus and during extra curricular activities.
The program is unscripted.
Open casting calls will be held on the St. Thomas campus
in the Sports and Fitness Center from 1 to 9 p.m. on Aug. 30
and 31; and on the St. Croix campus in the Student Center
from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sept. 4. In order to audition, indi-
viduals must be at least 18 years of age and enrolled as full-
time or part-time UVI students for the Fall 2006 semester.
The fourth season of "College Hill," featuring UVI stu-
dents, will air on BET in the spring of 2007. The BET Net-
work reaches more than 80 million households, according to
Nielsen media research, and can be seen in the United States,
Canada and the Caribbean.

Office at (340) 693-1058.

New Students Bond at Orientation

It didn't take long for
the 175 new students at
the St. Thomas campus
orientation to get to know
each other. At Day Two
of the Orientation Activi-
ties, the students were
separated into groups and
had to work together to
devise solutions for vari-
ous scenarios. The sce-
narios ranged from bud-
geting $300 for the se-
mester, to presenting the A new student, left, ispinnedwith a
UVI "Alma Matter By UVI pin by her mother at an orien-
the Sea" in a different for- station welcome ceremony on the
mat, to developing a St. Thomas campus. Fall semester
motto for the Class of classes began on Aug. 17.
2010. The bonding exercise was followed by presenters who
briefed the new students on the do's and don't of college
"Put education first," said UVI Social Sciences Profes-
sor Dr. Malik Sekou, who served as a motivational speaker at
orientation. "Treat this as a special time to make friendships,"

he said, encouraging Crucians to meet St. Thomians and vice
versa. "Do not isolate yourselves into these little groups or
posses. Those of you who are from here, reach out to those
who are not," Dr. Sekou said. "Become involved with UVI
activities. Do not come to class, get anA, and then go home."
Dr. Sekou said his most important words of advice are "pro-
tect yourselves at all times."
At a welcome ceremony later that day the new students
received UVI pins from administrators, officially marking them
as part of the UVI class of 2010.
Although admission and enrollment statistics are not yet
available, Director of Enrollment Management and Admis-
sions Carolyn Cook-Roberts said she expects to see an in-
crease. "The number of newly enrolled students has increased
over the last year," she said.
