As part of its “California Today” column, The New York Times profiled four members of this historic freshman class — discussing being part of a major shift in UC system and about starting college during the COVID-19 pandemic.
And two of those featured students are Summer Searchers — Mariana and Dora from the Bay Area!
At Summer Search, our mentors and College Access and Success staff form deep connections with our students. They work step-by-step with them to build college-going mindsets and behaviors, and to navigate the process that will ultimately lead them on the path to college. And it works!
We asked a few of our high school seniors to sit down with their mentors to discuss their college-bound journeys. Our students even got to flip the script and ask some interview-style questions of their own!
