Upward Bound Summer Academy Underway

Upward Bound Summer Academy (UBSA) began July 3rd marking the 52nd year Columbia College has held the program for high school students on the Morningside campus. Participants are taking courses in math, science, English, Spanish, and digital media in the mornings. Afternoons include fitness classes and organized study. Each evening the students retreat to Carmen Hall were they hold club meetings before “lights out.” The immersive program provides invaluable preparation for DDC students who will be the first in their families to attend college.
