"An investment in knowledge pays the best interest."-- Benjamin Franklin
The purpose of shadow day is to give high school students a taste of college before they head there themselves. Shadow day integrates high school with college by allowing high school students to get a true college experience by being on a university campus.
The event was from 9am to 2pm and over 20 students came out to partake in Shadow day. High school students were paired up with University at Albany students, who are also our STEP tutors. The pairing was based on the student's interest and the major of the college student. Majority of the students went to two college level classes, and after the classes asked the college students questions about the college experience.
Highschool and college students walked away from the experience happy as can be, and have expressed interest at attending the next Shadow Day in November.
