UPrep Week One!
University of California Berkeley
This past Thursday, UPrep students experienced a side of UC Berkeley they had never seen. Our 90 minute tour took them through the history and academic nature of the campus. After eating lunch at one of the fancy dining halls, we headed to individual academic buildings. Here the students got to sit in a classroom and speak to staff. To top it off, students got the chance to view all of the bay area from the top of the clock tower.
Class Time and Rec TIme!
Classes are underway and the students are working hard. Students are taking three classes: SAT Prep, College Prep, and College Seminar. Each class prepares the students in their own unique way for college. Some classes are more academic based, but the students are toughing through it!
Rec classes offer physical activities for the students. Some rec choices have includes improv, basketball, soccer, running club, and book club!
Practice SAT test at the beginning of the year.
Basketball with the Summer Institute for the Gifted.
A fierce soccer rivalry takes place in the fields of the campus.
