On Monday, September 28th, Upward Bound scholars attended the fall Elite College Fair, hosted by Exploring College Options. This local college fair gave students the opportunity to learn about the application process of some of the nation's elite institutions. Upward Bound scholar, Rebekah Amaya was noticeably excited and nervous. "When applying to colleges, there are just so many options. At this event, I learned how to figure out what is unique about each school, so that when I apply, I know I'm applying to the college that fits me best." Each presentation also included information regarding funding with a special focus on underrepresented students.
Sponsoring institutions for the Exploring College Options Fair included: Duke University, Harvard University, the University of Pennsylvania, Georgetown University, and Stanford University.
