No, they’re not making freshmen quite that young. The youngsters you saw on campus Feb. 27 — more than 120 of them — were guests of Jumpstart and EdMonth, invited to explore what they want to be when they grow up. Children rotated between a reading garden and learning stations about engineering, art and science.
Jumpstart’s group of more than 40 core members serve preschool children in low-income neighborhoods near the university, teaching them vital language and literacy skills. EdMonth is a student-led program devoted to raising awareness about the state of education.
