On Tuesday, March 27th and 28th, 41 Mira Monte students and parents from the College Bound Club toured UC Santa Cruz and Monterey Bay campuses during spring break. College Bound exposed these students and parents to post-secondary education at its finest hour, and as a result, they acquired detailed knowledge from admissions representatives and peer-student advisors regarding college admissions and opportunities. Representatives covered topics regarding admission requirements, majors, campus life, clubs, research, study abroad opportunities, resources for tuition, and other college/career related information. In addition, peer student advisor provided students with knowledge regarding affordable housing options and programs. The entire experience of travel, visitation, discussion, and student panel empowered MMHS students to pursue and achieve a higher education, a great LION leap into reinforcing MMHS “college going” culture. GO LIONS! Students also enjoyed downtime at Santa Cruz Boardwalk.
