Upward Bound students from Anderson High School had the opportunity to visit the historical campuses of University of California Berkeley and University of San Francisco. First generation students interested in pursuing a 4 year university after high school had the opportunity to tour and learn about the opportunities being offered in these San Francisco area schools. UC Berkeley wowed students with its traditions and mile long underground library. While USF boasts the nations largest and oldest cathedral on a college campus. Students also had the opportunity of doing some sight seeing at the Golden Gate Bridge.

At first you would think, “Great. Summer school.” But that’s not what this program is. This program consists of meeting new people, learning about your future goals and having fun. During this program, we learned how the police force works and some of the actions they would take in dire situations. All of us also became CPR Certified in one day! Along with a field trip to the Shasta Dam, we got catered by a delicious taco truck. We all got to know one another and have fun eating tacos with an amazing view.
During the second week, students got to stay in real college dorms, have lake days, and even go rafting. We all learned about public speaking and shared our future careers with other students and worked together with people from the same field of work to create a presentation. We were given tasty drinks & snacks during those hot summer days. It was great spending time with new people and learning so much about them.
