Wells Fargo Supports University of Success

03/19/12

Wells Fargo recently contributed $25,000 to The University of Scranton’s University of Success, a multi-year, pre-college program for high school students designed to develop the skills needed to successfully gain entrance to college.

The University of Success was founded in 1996 as a response to the drop in graduation rates and college enrollment for students who are underserved or underrepresented in the higher education process. Because of corporate and foundation support, such as the contribution made by Wells Fargo, and a University investment, the program is completely free of charge for families.

The University of Success offers enrichment courses for students in study skills, SAT preparation, public speaking, math, science, art and cultural activities, as well as financial aid and wellness seminars.

The University of Success is currently accepting applications for students entering the program in the summer of 2012. Applicants must currently be enrolled in the eighth grade and possess a strong desire to attend college in the future. Applications may be obtained by calling the University of Success Office at 941-4377 or by emailing Margaret Loughney, University of Success program director, at loughneym6@scranton.edu. Applications may also be obtained online from The University of Scranton’s University of Success website. The application deadline is April 2.
