College-Bound BSSD Seniors Participate in Campus Orientation

Twenty-one BSSD seniors had a chance to gear-up for college when they participated in a week-long campus orientation and tour.  Six students traveled to UAA and fifteen traveled to UAF.  While on campus, the students were able to complete placement tests, meet with advisers, register for classes, tour the campus, participate in a class shadow, and focus on other transition-related activities that will help them when they attend college in the fall.  This is the second year that college-bound seniors have been given the opportunity to participate in these trips, which are totally funded by BSSD.  Special thanks goes to Mary Reeve of UAA Native Student Services and Carole Murphrey of UAF Rural Student Services for helping to coordinate the trips, as well as to our chaperones Gary Eckenweiler, Susette Carrol, Craig Sherwood, and Karis Koett. It was a great experience for all involved and is one that will help to ensure success for our students when they get to college in the fall.  Way to go, seniors!
