Beyond the Belltower: Season 2
Beyond the Bell Tower is a podcast for students enrolled in NC State's TRIO programs, with current students, alumni and community members sharing personal stories to offer guidance. While aid programs help students overcome financial barriers to higher education, TRIO addresses class, social and cultural barriers; although TRIO is federally funded, there are many opportunities for donors to support opportunity for its students. The most recent episode of Beyond the Bell Tower features Khalia Braswell, a 2013 alumna and the CEO and founder of INTech, a nonprofit fostering interest in technology among young girls of color.
