For the 2015-2016 school year, our CofC Upward Bound Students visited four colleges for their Spring College Tour. The tour was originally scheduled for October 2015, but was postponed due effects of the hurricane that hit the Carolinas earlier that month.Those whom attended were freshmen, sophomores, and juniors. Amongst these colleges, they visited Johnson C. Smith University, UNC Chapel Hill, Duke University, and North Carolina Central University (NCCU) over a two-day trip, from Wednesday March 30-Thursday March 31 2016, during spring break. This year was a wonderful experience for the Upward Bound participants, and due to the exposure of multiple college vibes and environments including a few religious encounters; they were able to pick and choose which college lifestyle would suit them best for future decisions. It is an absolutely incredible ordeal to see our young men and women working their potential to go from being college bound to college found!
