UTSAcampwebAbout 100 incoming seniors participated in the five-day GEAR UP University Ready Summer Residential Camp at the University of Texas at San Antonio on June 18-22. The students stayed in dorms, experienced campus life and attended sessions taught by UTSA professors. The students had the opportunity to work on their college essays so they will be ready to submit with their college applications in the fall. Twenty parents also spent a night in the dorms and participated in college sessions designed specifically for them.
