Going into the program, the first thing you expect, is to make new friends. At times it might be hard. Not knowing anyone can be scary. But the best thing you can do, it try to get to know each other and do new things together. Doing this will give you more confidence to open up and meet new people. Even if you think you had a bad first impression, you should always try again. Some friendships might start a little rocky but later turn into something great. Being in Upward Bound, they have many activities to help you. Movie night, girl talk, and workouts are just a few examples. So get out there, make some friends and have a great time.
