Wondering how our alumni are doing?

"I recently graduated from University of Wisconsin-Madison with a Masters in Agroecology. Upward Bound was extremely helpful to navigate the college admissions process. I also joined the [TRIO] McNair program that assisted me in graduate school admissions. I greatly appreciate all that you do!" -Samantha A., 2011 graduate from Sauk Rapids Rice

"I graduated with my nursing degree just this May!! I would not have been as confident in my abilities to perform under pressure without Upward Bound! They held high standards and continually challenged us to learn at all times! I learned how to be a good communicator, a team player and to balance a very active lifestyle through this program! I absolutely treasured my time in UB- I cannot thank you enough for investing in all of us and believing we could reach our dreams!!" -Hannah O., 2013 graduate from Willmar

"If it wasn't for Upward Bound, I don't think I would have had the help or knowledge to get into college and do well in college. I'm so glad I was a part of this amazing organization and how much they helped me prepare for my future." -Amber S., 2010 graduate from Tech

"I graduated from St. Olaf College in 2012 with a BA in Biology. In 1015 I received my MS from the University of Minnesota-Duluth in Integrated Biosciences. After that I taught two semesters at Coe College as an Adjunct Instructor and worked as a Research Assistant at the University of Iowa. I am now in the second year of graduate school getting my PhD in Microbiology at the University of Iowa." - Phuong T., 2008 graduate from Apollo
