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

The University of Success includes 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 program provides hands-on learning experiences and field trips designed to engage the students in creative thinking and abstract problem solving. Students begin the program as they enter 9th grade and are guided to successfully complete high school and gain entrance into a college or university.

Wells Fargo has provided continuous support to the University of Succes since 2011.
