There will be free pizza and drinks from 11AM to 2PM in the ESB on Thursday, September 25th. All UB alumni are encouraged to stop by at some point during this time frame to eat, visit, get an alumni card (if you haven't already) and use the computer lab. Please let Chris Prichard know by Sept. 20th if you plan to attend so we can plan accordingly for the right amount of food! Hope to see as many of you on this day as possible!

48th Summer - Best One Yet!

posted Aug 21, 2014, 10:37 AM by Matthew Hyden   [ updated Aug 21, 2014, 10:38 AM ]

Summer 2014 was amazing!  Our students enjoyed classes, a variety of activities on campus and around Morehead, a UB Rally Day at EKU with over 600 UB students from Kentucky in attendance, a trip to Jenny Wiley Theater to watch Peter Pan, a trip to King's Island, and Juniors visited Orlando, FL for the end of the summer trip.  How are we going to top this one next year? Just wait and see!

Current Upward Bound Students!  Summer is quickly approaching!  

Remember, SUMMER FORMS are due no later than the April Return Trip, April 26th!  All students received their summer forms packet at a school visit or through the mail.  If you have lost any part of this use the SUMMER FORMS link to download and print new forms!

This year's summer program will begin in June.  Non-Bridge students (2013-2014 school year freshmen, sophomores & juniors) will attend a nonresidential week on June 3-5, 2014 and will move into the residence halls on June 8th!  Bridge students (eligible 2013-2014 school year seniors) will move into the residence halls on June 1st!  When Non-Bridge student move in, please consult THIS SCHEDULE to determine when to arrive.

Upward Bound is recruiting for the 2013-2014 academic year.  Joining now will ensure your spot in our 2014 Summer program!  If you've heard any of our students talk about the program, you know it both fun and educational!  It's better than sitting at home for the summer because you will get to meet about 250 other students from the region.  We have amazingly fun activities to keep you busy, and our classes will help prepare you for college both academically and socially!

So what are you waiting for?  We serve students from the public high school in following counties Boyd, Carter (both East and West Carter), Elliott, Fleming, Johnson, Lawrence, Lewis, Magoffin, Mason, Menifee, Morgan and Rowan.  Apply today by seeing your high school guidance counselor for an application or print your own here.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, but many schools have already begun recruiting, and will finish by Mid November.  Be sure to get your application submitted today to ensure you have a spot in UB!

The 2013-2014 Academic Year Handbook, along with a number of other forms are now available.  We will be discussing these during a visit to your school in September, but these will be here if you'd like a little light reading ahead of time, or if you lose yours after being given a paper copy.
