Shadow Day

October 8, 2012 @ UAlbany Campus

"An investment in knowledge pays the best interest."-- Benjamin Franklin

On October 8th and November 11th was the UAlbany STEP Program's College Shadow Day. This year marks our 2nd annual event.

The purpose of shadow day is to give high school students a taste of college before they head there themselves. Shadow day integrates high school with college by allowing high school students to get a true college experience by being on a university campus.

The event was from 9am to 2pm and over 20 students came out to partake in Shadow day. High school students were paired up with University at Albany CSTEP students, who are alsoserve as STEP tutors and mentors. The pairing was based on the student's interest and the major of the college student. Majority of the students went to two college level classes, and after the classes they asked the college students questions about their college experience.

High school students experience walking in the shoes of a college student and college students were able to serve as an example of what hard work and determination can get you.
