SEPTEMBER ACADEMY NEWS
Upward Bound welcomed twenty-two participants and thirty-one candidates to the September 11 Academy! Topics included assessment activities for first-time attendees, an introduction to the Seven Habits of Highly Effective College Students for the seniors, and on-line Academic Advancement activities for returning juniors and seniors. Juniors, sophomores, and freshman were introduced to the Cornell note-taking system in study skills seminars. All students had the chance to get to know each other and to celebrate their unique characteristics in a self-awareness workshop.
Thank you all for your contributions and for making the first Saturday Academy of 2004-2005 a success!
