Harvard Hopefuls: Scholars Inspire College Grads at College Pride Day


"What are college classes like?"

"You get to live with your friends?"


"What's for lunch at the college cafeteria?"

Some of the questions scholars posed to volunteers and BELL staff on Thursday, January 30, as part of College Pride Month in the BELL After School program. While the college grads wore gear from their alma maters, scholars practiced interviewing, drafted their college application essays, and learned a ton about what it's like to go to college - and what they can do now to prepare.

Jeff Giuffrida, Northeastern Law School Student and BELL Young Professionals Council Volunteer, shared his perspective on College Pride Day in a post on our Tumblr blog. Check it out!
