The University continues to provide inspiration to many children of migrant workers who might not otherwise attend college. This past summer, the CSUCI Summer College Program provided rewarding and educational experiences to nearly forty local students from the Oxnard Union High School District.
The program provides students with sessions designed to improve their general study skills, as well as a college-level course taught by a University professor. This summer, the high school students participated in a psychology course taught by Virgil Adams, associate professor of psychology.
“The Summer College Program gives these students a full-range of experiences,” says Gary Berg, dean of Extended Education. “It prepares them academically and by completing the course the students also earn college credit. They also gain a feeling for university life, and that often serves as a strong incentive to attend a university or college in the future. They get a preview of what it's like.”
