DDC Upward Bound and Talent Search Notifications and Schedules

  • Upward Bound Saturday classes tomorrow! Arrive on time, get a raffle ticket, and a snack to eat. To be early is to be on time!
  • March 14th from 1-4 pm in Roone Arledge Cinema, Lerner Hall, screening of the amazing film, “First Generation.” Narrated by Golden Globe nominee Blair Underwood, FIRST GENERATION tells the story of four high school students - an inner city athlete, a small town waitress, a Samoan warrior dancer, and the daughter of migrant field workers - who set out to break the cycle of poverty and bring hope to their families and communities by pursuing a college education. This 95 minute documentary explores the problem of college access faced by first generation and low-income students and how their success has major implications for the future of our nation.  There’ll be a panel to answer all your questions.
