Wayne State provides high school students with weeklong college experience

July 11, 2013

The office of Community Engagement@Wayne is hosting its annual College JumpStart program. The free program takes place July 14-20, 2013, and is designed to expose underrepresented students to higher education and career paths. Sixty ninth and 10th graders from metropolitan Detroit will spend a full week living and learning on the campus of Wayne State University. "We hope the experience we provide to these young students will help them see the tremendous possibilities that exist when they attend a university like Wayne State," said Jerry Herron, dean of the Irvin D. Reid Honors College. "We're looking forward to having them on campus as our guests."
