Student TRiO Upward Bound, Educational Talent Search, and GEAR UP, TRiO Upward Bound, Educational Talent Search, and GEAR UP

Humboldt State University TRiO Upward Bound, Educational Talent Search, and GEAR UP proudly hosted the 2019 Winter Academy this past February. Winter Academy brings high school students to HSU’s campus to take part in “A Day in the Life of a College Student” and to picture the possibilities of life after high school. The day was filled with TRiO and GEAR UP students who took the time to spend their President’s day off taking classes with enrolled HSU students in disciplines they expressed interest in, participating in workshops, study sessions, and tours of campus facilities. This massively collaborative effort among HSU early outreach programs has been incredibly successful and continues to grow in popularity and attendance each February.

HSU TRiO alum students played a critical role in guiding students to and from classes ensuring timely arrival as well as acting as docents to assist them with the transition between classes from all corners of the campus. HSU staff, faculty and professors were and continue to be committed to receiving TRiO and GEAR UP students into their classrooms, labs, and facilities and without this support, the Winter Academy would not be as successful as it is. Students sat in over 20 different lectures, demonstrations, and activities from all three colleges on campus, and toured the green house, the special collections room, and athletic facilities. 50 students participated in the academy this year and that number is expected to grow next year.
