The UNLV Upward Bound Math & Science Center (UBMSC) kicked off the 2016-2017 academic year with its annual student and parent fall orientation on Saturday, September 10, 2016. The orientation marks the beginning of a new academic year for UBMSC and reunites UBMSC students, families, and staff through workshops focused on funding postsecondary education through scholarships and grants, college preparation, and career planning for new and returning high school students.

Prospective student workshops focused on the Upward Bound admission process, high school graduation requirements, and services provided by the Upward Bound Math & Science Center. UBMSC encourages participants to challenge themselves academically, maintain good grades, seek out volunteer opportunities, and stay active in their school community.

The senior class, referred to as “Bridge”, attended workshops geared toward graduation, college admission, scholarship deadlines, and FAFSA information. As a highlight of the UBMSC, senior class participants can earn six college credit hours, along with free tuition, fees, books, room and board, and participate in activities the summer after they graduate from high school.
