The CSUS and At & T Road to College bus visited current GEAR UP School Harris Middle School on May 3. More than 400 students had the opportunity to board a unique tour bus geared toward increasing underserved students access to college. The activities included: A cool tour bus decorated with college pennants and memorabilia, computers and an interactive video about college and career choices, A photo booth where students took a picture wearing a graduation cap and holding a diploma, Assembly member Alyson Huber talked to students, CSU staff motivated and cheered the students on.
Prior to the bus visiting Harris, teachers and counselors spent a day with students helping them map out there path to college using the CSUS Road to College curriculum.
The Harris students and staff loved it!
One of the most rewarding things for me about this bus tour has been the number of dedicated teachers, counselors, and principals we met across the state. I was so inspired to have met educators who are committed and passionate about the future of California children. It certainly made me think about the many allies and partners higher education has out there and how can we best leverage this experience. It reminded me of why I got into this business in the first place.
