Student Testimonials

  • "Upward Bound is the best program that anyone could ever hope to be a part of. It has literally changed my life for the better in so many ways. We started off as strangers, but now we've become more, we've become a family."
  • "This is the best program on the planet!!"
  • "People always told me that you can be anything. The thing that Upward Bound did differently was not just tell me, but give me the tools to prove to myself that I can be anything."
  • "Meeting with UB monthly helps me focus on what I need to do and when I need to do it for my academics."
  • "Without UB, I would not learn as much as I do now.  Math and science mainly but I also learned a lot about our Appalachian culture."
  • "As much as I HATE to say this, I think we should be required to write so we will be better prepared for upcoming classes, the ACT, and college."
  • "I love being in UB because I get the opportunity to experience new things, meet new people, and go new places.  UB has prepared me so much for what to expect in college."
  • "I have met many new people than I normally would and I drastically changed my social skills to better myself."
  • "The most beneficial part of UB for me is the tutoring/studying skills.  I need all the help I can get for that!"
