On Sunday, March 5th, thirty-two ACRMA 4 students attended the UCLA’s “I’m Going to College” fair at Drake Stadium. The fair provided a campus tour of UCLA given by two current UCLA Football athletes. It was a great opportunity to expose our students to university life, as well as a reminder that it’s never too early to begin thinking about college. Our students had the opportunity to play carnival games, receive face painting, and get autographs from UCLA student-athletes. After the college fair, students were treated to a UCLA Women's Gymnastics event at Pauley Pavilion. The Bruins secured the win over the University of California Berkeley.
On Tuesday, February 28 all 6th grade students attended a college tour of California State University of Northridge.
