What’s the news?
To prevent summer learning melt, West Virginia University’s Outward Bound provided a three-week summer program, allowing local high school students a first-hand look at what college is really about. This Friday, students will present their case studies in Forensic Anthropology.

“Our goals are to help pique curiosity, stem summer learning melt, alleviate anxiety of the unknown, and to instill confidence in their abilities.” –Frances Clark, Director, West Virginia University Upward Bound/Trio
