We will organize supplemental activities to the educational program. These activities will be conducted mainly on the weekends and will include a variety of fun and educational experiences.

Some of the activities will be in-house using local facilities, while others will be field trips that require travel. Some examples are:

1) Information Session/Workshops: students will have a chance to hear from the UC Berkeley admission office on how to write a college application and personal statements.

2) Events with other UC Berkeley students: we will invite Berkeley students to interact with our students at organized events like BBQs or ice cream parties.

3) Weekend excursions: we will arrange weekend field trips to Stanford University, downtown San Francisco, Fisherman’s Wharf, art museums, Lombard Street, Silicon Valley, and Bay Area shopping centers. The itinerary is subject to change every summer.

4) End-of-session trip to Los Angeles: due to its success, it has become tradition to take a 4 day trip to LA with all the students in the program. Students will have the opportunity to tour universities, visit amusement parks such as Disneyland or Universal Studios, and explore the numerous sights that make LA world famous.

Daily supervision: Our staff will do roll-call every single night from 9:30 – 10:00 PM.

Chaperones management/Emergency Contact: All the activities will be chaperoned by a minimum of one staff member. We also have emergency contact staff available at all times and Residence Advisors (RAs) living in the same dormitory with the students in case there is an emergency.
