AVID Overnight Study Trip: CSU San Marcos, San Diego State University, UC San Diego

Our AVID System sponsored an overnight study trip to San Diego area universities on December 3-4, 2015.  The students toured and spoke with admissions officers from CSU San Marcos, San Diego State University, and UC San Diego.  The trip provided students with knowledge and awareness of colleges and universities and motivation to work toward their goals of achieving higher education.  It is part of MOI's continuing efforts to promote a college-going culture at our school.
