This post is going to serve as more of a journal entry rather than the expositive writing you have gotten used to from me (don’t worry, if you’re looking for an editorial, check out The Healthcare Scare) Well, this Sunday, a group of SMASH scholars are embarking upon an adventure to Southern California. We have a set of schools we are going to visit, as well as other interesting activities along the way. This coming week is definitely going to shape up into an awesome time with intelligent people and important information. Among the schools we are planned to visit are Harvey Mudd, UCLA, California Institute of Technology, and California Polytechnic University at San Obispo Luis. The most exciting part: everything planned for the following week was planned for the utmost relevancy to our lives. We will be looking at school with a special interest in STEM related fields (science, technology, engineering and math). We have events planned with people of color (just like us) who work in these fields of interest as well! The staff here definitely planned this with the students in mind. I promise to keep you updated with the happenings of the gang along the way. Look for more updates as the adventure continues!
This is Megan, signing out.
