Shadow A UO College Student For A Day — NEW Program!

The UO Bridges Program will hold a “Shadow Day” on Thursday, March 1, 2018.  Shadow Day will give high school students the opportunity to attend a class with a University of Oregon student, receive a tour and have lunch with UO students.  Shadow Day aims to encourage students from traditionally underrepresented groups (first generation, ethnically diverse, learning differences or qualify for free/reduced lunch) to pursue a goal of higher education.  See Mrs. W for more info and for the reservation card.  If we have five or more students participating in Shadow Day, Mrs. W will provide a bus transportation. 

The UO Bridges Program was created by the UO multicultural staff to encourage and support students from traditionally underrepresented populations in reaching their post-secondary education and career goals by hosting workshop, events and other programs to inform students of the resources available to them.  Bridges also offers essay help for scholarships, as well as general assistance and information every Friday from 2:30-4:00PM in the Multicultural center, room 204 int he EMU.
