High School Students Get To Try Out College Life

May 30, 2014, 5:35 AM

High School Students Get To Try Out College Life
ABERDEEN, SD -

About 50 high school students will be on the Northern State University campus starting next week as part of an annual summer program.

The Upward Bound Summer Program gives students in grades 9-12 a six-week college experience. They stay in residence halls and take high school courses in science, math, reading, writing and Spanish. Students also visit various other colleges and universities, travel to museums and perform community service projects.

Upward Bound helps first-generation and low-income students prepare for, enroll in and graduate from college.

Langford native Kelsey Long went through the program and is now a counselor. She says if she didn't participate in the program she might not have gone to college.

Long graduated in May with a degree in business management and is pursuing a graduate degree.
