Migrant Education Program Students
Complete Summer Camp at CSU Bakersfield


Migrant Education Program students told CSU Senior Director of External Affairs Jorge Haynes that many of them want to pursue degrees in mathematics to resolve important problems in engineering, construction, medicine and science.

A group of 150 elementary and middle school students from the Bakersfield City School District's Migrant Education Program experienced the excitement of college life this summer while attending school camp at California State University, Bakersfield.

Students learned about the academic and social aspects of college life and began thinking about their college aspirations for the future.

The program is the result of a partnership between the school district and CSU Bakersfield's College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) and CSUB Mini-Corps. The program benefits children of temporary or seasonal workers for the agriculture or fishing industries.
