Spring Campus Visits Underway

Spring is here and with it the return to school for Milken Scholars, fresh from break and recharging their batteries in anticipation of the new semester.

Every year during the spring and fall, the Milken Scholars Program engages Scholars in action across the country in a series of campus visits. It is a chance for program directors and staff to meet with them in groups and individually to offer support, advice or an empathetic ear.

                                                                                                   

 

These campus visits are also agreat way for Scholars to maintain contact and to support each other throughout the school year, as campus photos and reports are posted on the private web site after each visit. Moreover, they give Scholars who attend the same school a great opportunity to compare notes.

Many times campus visits bring out alumni Scholars who take a break from graduate school or their jobs to enjoy the company of Scholars in the midst of their undergraduate careers. As with all aspects of their involvement, the opportunity they provide to share and listen as peers is an invaluable resource to those who are adjusting to the array of challenges that college life presents nearly every step of the way.

Over the past year Milken Scholars Program directors and staff have visited over a dozen campuses in cities on both coasts, and there are no plans to slow down.

This spring we will be dining in Manhattan, Washington, D.C. and Boston, and taking Scholar-guided tours of schools such as Harvard, Princeton and Yale. We will step out to Berkeley and Stanford and check in with Scholars attending schools throughout Southern California.

Spring is here and the Milken Scholars Program is hitting the road to visit with Scholars while they are on their journeys to becoming lifelong leaders for a better world.
