December 2014 Return Trip

posted Dec 1, 2014, 12:34 PM by Matthew Hyden

The Morehead State University Upward Bound Program’s December Return Trip is this Saturday, December 6 at 10 a.m.  See the Bus Schedule if you are unsure about times, and be sure to be a little early to each bus stop. Freshmen, sophomores and juniors will report to Reed 419 to receive their class assignments for the day.  Classes will be based on the scores you received on the practice ACT test taken in October.  If you did not take the test, placement in class will be based on your grades.  Seniors will be working on College Prep with Chris and Benji. Signs will be posted to direct seniors to the appropriate classrooms.

Students eligible for stipend will receive $20 at the end of the day. If you did not attend and/or complete the summer program, you will not receive stipend until next summer. Stipend eligible students must attend Return Trips to receive stipend.  All students, including stipend ineligible students, who do not miss more then 2 Return Trips will be eligible for an additional incentive in May.

If you are being picked up by a parent/guardian, please instruct them to meet you at the shelter in front of Lappin no later then 2:50 p.m.  If you are riding with another student, please submit a note from your parent to Upward Bound Staff upon arrival at the Return Trip.  If you are riding the bus in the morning but not in the afternoon, you must provide a note to your bus driver and the Upward Bound Staff.

This will be an exciting day at UB because we have MANY new students.  Please take the time to introduce yourself and invite new students to lunch.  If you are a new student: WELCOME!!! School captains, be sure to step up and do your best to make new students feel welcome.

Take a moment to explore the MSU UB Website, and be sure to check out our latest newsletters: MSU UB Newsletters.

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!
