Designed as a forum for Caribbean Students to network, get information on sponsorship opportunites, and meet with leaders of the Caribbean Community, the 2pm to 6pm event will show Caribbean students the resources that are available to them, ranging from access to employment, help with shelter, food, books and a way to be involved in the Caribbean Community in Atlanta.
