With help from our partners at the Neighborhood Partnership Program @ Occidental College, GEAR UP 4 LA students participated in our annual Shadow Day. Our students had the opportunity to shadow current Occidental students for a day to get a taste of the true college experience through a college students’ perspective!
Students had to opportunity to sit in on college lectures, participate in college level courses, and get a taste of the future academia that awaits them.
What would be the college experience without a visit to the Dining Hall? Students got to experience the wide variety of food available at Occidental Market Place and had a place at the table at the Gresham Dining Hall to enjoy their meal. Our future college students also participated in small group dialogue sessions with current college students. They got to ask questions about the college experience and really learn about the day in a life of a college student.
Thank you Occidental College and Neighborhood Partnership Program for making this a great experience for our GEAR UP 4 LA students.
