How do your turn your passions into a major, and how do you turn that major into a career? These are some of the most important questions for college students and college-bound high schoolers. We’ll be answering these questions and more at the Tulane Upward Bound “Major to Career” workshop this Saturday. Guest speakers will share their stories and give advice, and students will have plenty of opportunities to discover what jobs are out there in the areas they are passionate about—and what it takes to get where they want to be. It’ll be a morning of stimulating discussion and fun for all!
If you’re in high school, the future—especially college—can sometimes seem far off. College sounds like another world, one filled with new responsibilities, intense study sessions, and an all-you-can-eat smorgasbord of junk food. Campus tours are one great way to start exploring this world, but they only give you one side of the story. What they don’t give you is the experience of actually being a college student.
To give our students this experience, Tulane Upward Bound will be hosting a “College Kid for a Day” event on 2/11 and 2/12 where our senior students will shadow their senior mentors (all Tulane students) as they go about a typical day on Tulane’s campus. There will be plenty of opportunities to sit in on classes, get a sense of the resources and study spaces the campus has to offer, and, of course, to take selfies.
