Southeastern Louisiana University started off their 2012 summer Upward Bound Classic and Math/Science Programs yesterday with a bang.
With over 300 students from the surrounding parishes, high school students begin a 6-week program that combines academic study during the day and cultural classes at night.
In addition to biology, English, Spanish, algebra and history, the students are exposed to drawing, public speaking, aerobics, scrapbooking and glee.
For the third year in a row, the journalism class has been keeping a blog and podcasting their adventures on the university campus.
During the first week, students learn the elements of interviewing and write profiles on other classmates.
