“Crossing Borders to College Attainment: From Dreams to Reality” 

Much like the act of “crossing a border” as described in Luis Alberto Urrea's, The Devil's Highway, the transition from high school to college can feel like entering a foreign world for first-generation college students, requiring them to learn a new language, social customs and way of life.

During this presentation, CAMP students will share experiences of crossing their own educational border during their first year of college.  Because there is no one way to express this complex and at times challenging journey, these first-generation college students will use media such as art, digital storytelling and poetry to convey how they found a path to academic success.
