Approximately 230 area high school students will be moving into Lassen and Shasta halls starting June 14 as part of California State University, Chico’s Upward Bound program.

The six-week summer program is only one component of Upward Bound Projects, a federally funded year-round program that provides academically promising low-income and first-generation college-bound students with valuable resources for navigating a four-year university. It is the University’s longest running grant program, founded in 1966 and currently celebrating its 50th anniversary; it serves 18 schools in seven counties.
