High School Juniors Get a Taste of College Life
Friday, 26 July 2013
High school juniors experienced college firsthand this month at Trinity.
Eleven students from Noble Network of Charter Schools participated in College Quest, a three-week college immersion program.
In partnership with Right Angle, a program of the Noble Network of Charter Schools, College Quest provides high performing high school students with the tools and strategies needed to be a successful student in high school, college, and beyond as well as the opportunity to earn college credit.
This year, College Quest students enrolled in History 103 or Psychology 123 courses from July 8 to 26. They spent Monday through Friday morning in class. In the afternoon, they attended an academic coaching session that taught them how to be successful college learners.
During their time at Trinity, students resided in Alumni Hall under the guidance of Resident Assistants Lette Huisman ’14 of Hudsonville, Michigan, and Sam Lankah ’13 of Warrenville, IL. The program simulates the daily college experience: the group ate in the Dining Hall, worked out in the fitness center, completed homework in the computer labs, and checked books out of the campus library.
The program also included social and service activities, including evening bonfires, a Chicago Fire soccer game, and volunteering at Feed My Starving Children.
