Extreme Academics

Extreme Academics is launching a new program this spring quarter in partnership with the Writing Center:  Upward Bound!  This series of workshops will help you develop your academic identity and situate yourself for meaningful work after graduation.  

This week:  Upward Bound Workshop #3: Navigating the Field, Wednesday April 25 from 4-5:30 in AAC 340. Learn how to find fellowships, scholarships, journals, and conferences in your interest areas.
Please RSVP to


We launched the program this year with the Opportunities Fair, which featured representatives from across campus, including Career Services, Arts Humanities and Social Sciences, Internationalization, the Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning, the Honors Program, Undergraduate Research Center, campus libraries and the Office of Research and Special Projects.  The information they shared on ways to work on campus and in the community to strengthen your academic and pre-professional experience is housed on this video.

This year our emphasis will again be on internships and research, and we will again be partnering with the Writing Center.  We have also partnered with the Student Opportunity Center to give you the chance to explore a range of publishing, internships, and conference opportunities.
