On the Road Again

GEAR UP students getting onto a school bus

Over Thanksgiving weekend students took a GEAR UP 4 LA sponsored, day long trip to UC Santa Barbara and Cal-State Northridge and a two-day trip to Chapman University and San Diego State University. These college trips included campus tours, student panels, and financial aid information. These trips opened students’ eyes to future possibilities. Rachel Lee, a student at Grand Arts HS, realized that a smaller school would allow her to know more people, while Imani Salazar liked the idea that the larger university had more to offer him.
