Hosted on Central Michigan University's campus, this three week long aspect of the Upward Bound program provides an immersive, college-like experience for participants. Students stay in the dorms, attend academic programming, and particpate in on-campus social events.
The academic programming during the day is taught by current CMU students majoring in education, through a partnership between Upward Bound and the College of Education and Human Services.
In the evenings, students participate in a variety of social activities. It is a long three weeks, but well worth the energy!
