BU UB & UBMS Students Recognized by U.S. Department of Education
Several Boston University Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math & Science students were recognized by the Student Services department of the U.S. Department of Education. Below is an excerpt from the Student Services newsletter. You can read the full Student Services newsletter, including the below story, here.
Participants in the TRIO Upward Bound (UB) and Upward Bound Math and Science (UBMS) projects at Boston University (BU) are shining examples of how hard work can lead to academic accomplishment. In fact, a UB or UBMS student was the valedictorian or salutatorian at five of the projects’ six targeted high schools. These five achievers aren’t resting on their laurels, but are going on to begin postsecondary studies at top institutions like Harvard University, Bryn Mawr College, and BU and will participate in programs like the Posse Scholars and BU’s Thomas M. Menino Scholars program. The students credit UB and UBMS with exposing them to rigorous academic opportunities, cultural activities, meaningful friendships, and the challenge to face new adventures and conquer their fears.
