High School Students Explore University Life (July 30, 2008)

Nine high school students recently got a taste of university life in Guam as part of the Summer Bridge Program offered by the Northern Marianas College’s Educational Talent Search Program. The Summer Bridge Program prepares students for college success by exposing them to various elements of being away from home, or more specifically, life transferring to an off-island four-year university.

During their six-day trip (July 19-24), the students visited the University of Guam, where they were given tours and presentations on the departments at the institution. At UOG, the students engaged in a scavenger hunt, in which they matched the university’s departments with their responsibilities.

“All of the students were able to walk away from the program with a better understanding of what’s in store when they transfer to a four-year university,” said Joan Dubrall, ETS Advisement Coordinator. “They are now focused on what preparations they must make before their transition to college.”

Other ETS staff that accompanied the students on their trip were ETS Director Jeanette Villagomez and Georgia Salas, ETS Administrative Manager.

The Educational Talent Search is a program that identifies and assists individuals ages 11 and above who have the potential to succeed in higher education. The program provides academic, career, and financial counseling to its participants and encourages them to graduate from high school and continue on to the postsecondary school of their choice.

Students who want to enroll in the ETS program can visit the ETS office in Building I on the NMC Campus in As Terlaje or call 234-5498 ext. 1312 for more information.
