Chance got the opportunity to meet with Clark-Atlanta President Ronald Johnson at the Chicago Football Classic this weekend. The game was a contest between the CAU Panthers and the Grambling State University Tigers.

“I enjoyed spending quality time with Chance,” said Johnson. “He was extremely welcoming to his city as he shared his intentions to learn more about CAU and the programs we offer.”

CAU's Chair and Professor of New Media Production Nsenga Burton added, “Chance asked intellectually curious questions about the Mass Media Arts Department. We discussed what we have to offer him in our production and new media courses and how he could merge that with other disciplines like Africana Studies and Political Science.”

The 24-year-old entertainer also helped launch summer audio mastering classes with Chicago's Kids of the Kingdom Summer Music Academy. In addition, Chance announced the Twilight Awards to honor the contributions of educators, parents, and students.
