Upward Bound hosts TRiO Exchange Day

Mirroring the concept of a student exchange program, Upward Bound hosted TRiO Exchange Day, where students from a partner TRiO Program are matched with UB Scholars for a day of all things TRiO – Notre Dame. Traveling from Chicago, Illinois, Upward Bound participants of the Dime Child Foundation were partnered with UB Scholars as they indulged in the cuisine of the Legends of Notre Dame Restaurant, discussed shared experiences, and even shared a few falls as they enjoyed ice skating in the Compton Family Ice Arena. To finalize the day, students received a campus tour provided by Notre Dame alumunus and Upward Bound advisor, Alkeyna Aldridge. Upward Bound junior, Jermaine Lighthall mentioned, "This was pretty cool. I've never been ice-skating before, so that was a new experience within itself. Plus, conversations with the other students made me realize how fortunate we are to be in Upward Bound."
