FOND
DU LAC, Wis. –

The Upward
Bound Math and Science (UBMS) program at Marian University recently hosted its
third summer college prep session for local high school students.

“The UBMS program really helped me to get ahead in
my high school classes,” said Bailey Darling, a third year participant of UBMS
and senior at Fond du Lac high school. “I’m passionate about science, and this
program has helped me find out what college I’d like to attend and what I’d
like to major in. UBMS even assists students throughout the year, through
tutoring and workshops to help with the college application and financial aid
process.”

“UBMS gave me the courage to break out of my shell
and meet new people, as well as boost my confidence in the classroom,” said Taylor
Carpenter, a third year participant and senior at Horace Mann high school. “UBMS
has made school fun and interesting, and has helped me and my family learn more
about colleges.”

The Upward Bound Math and
Science (UBMS) program at Marian University provides college and career
readiness services during both the academic year and the summer to students
from Fond du Lac and Horace Mann high schools. Through the program,
participants are able to attend classes and workshops at Marian University,
visit area colleges and partake in educational enrichment trips. Summer
workshops cover topics such as information technology, world languages, communication,
economics, personal vision and many other personal development topics.
