Area high school students participating in Wesleyan’s Upward Bound Math-Science Program are on campus through July 25. The students, pictured here on July 7, often spend their lunch recess near Usdan University Center and play sports on Andrus Field. Upward Bound is designed to help low-income and first-generation college students recognize and develop their potential, to excel in math and science, pursue post secondary degrees, and ultimately to find careers in the math and science professions.
The six-week academic summer program offers intensive math, science, writing and language training; counseling, mentoring and academic support services; exposure to Wesleyan’s faculty members who do research in mathematics and the sciences; and education or counseling services designed to improve the financial and economic literacy of students.
