The Sunrise Stampede, which is a fundraiser for SVVSD schools, needs volunteers:
The University of Wyoming STEP Summer Bridge program, is an unique opportunity for incoming freshman. STEP Summer Bridge is a four week program for entering freshman who wish to get a jump start on their college career. It is comprised of a self-directed math course, a first year seminar, as well as co-curricular activities aimed at exposing students to campus resources and the community of Laramie, WY at large. Students will live on campus and build a community with their fellow students.
The mission of STEP Summer Bridge is to prepare students for academic success by challenging them to engage with their studies in a supportive learning environment. Students will be empowered to grow academically as they work collaboratively with their fellow classmates and instructors. Students will also become connected to Laramie as a community outside of the university to create a sense of belonging that will make their transition to the University of Wyoming a positive and welcoming experience.
Happy snowy Friday Falcons! As the snow falls and makes messes of our streets, I hope you dreaming about summer and all the possibilities that lie before you with your 2.5 months of freedom.
Speaking of the possibilities have you considered the awesome option to not only experience something fun but something to make you smarter, improve your college applications/resumes? Check out Girl’s State and Boy’s State! You can work with your peers from all over Colorado and learn about government and actually start influencing policy. It’s five days in June (June 5 – 10) and you get to hang on college campuses, work on actual issues, and figure out how to make a difference.
Interested in an amazing opportunity for first generation, under-represented STEM students to attend a summer session at Colorado School of Mines.
Future Juniors and Seniors (current Sophomores and Juniors) to apply for Colorado School of Mines Summer Multicultural Engineering Training Program (SUMMET).
