Upward Bound's Jersey Roots, Global Reach

This summer, 165 scholars from New Brunswick and Plainfield Public Schools participated in Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math-Science Pre-College Programs Summer Institute. The scholars were able to experience the full Rutgers mantra: “Jersey Roots, Global Reach”. Our Math-Science Scholars participated in lab experiences at the Waksman Microbiology and Firestein Laboratories on Busch, which further increased their interest in the STEM fields. In addition to residing on the Livingston campus for six weeks and taking summer courses, scholars visited RU Newark and Camden to discover their various programs, what makes each campus unique, and why so many people call RU their alma mater.
