IamCollegeBound College Fair & Youth Summit: Recap

Thank you so much for attending our annual “I am College Bound” College Fair and Youth Summit this past Monday. You had the opportunity to hear from Dean Traxler to learn more about the School of Environmental & Biological Sciences programs and student opportunities. At our college fair, we had over 25 colleges and universities including all Rutgers campuses, NJIT, SUNY John Jay School of Criminal Justice, Harrisburg College, North Carolina A&T State University, and Bennett College to name a few. Congratulations to the senior who received instant decisions to Fairleigh Dickinson University and Bennett College. Some of our most notable workshops on Historically Black Colleges & Universities, Corona Virus, and Mental Health. During lunch at Brower, you interacted with TRIO undergraduate students and receive college tips and advice. Dr. Porcja from the SAS Chemistry & Biological Chemistry Departments experiment was amazing! TRIO Alum and keynote speaker Richard Taylor challenged you to be accountable for investing in yourselves, mental health and your actions.

Please share with us some of your favorite moments and pictures. Follow us on social media to learn more about upcoming events.

Let us know what you would like to see next year! 

 

Sincerely,

Upward Bound & Upward Bound Math-Science Team
