The Daily Brief

KUBS Program 2016 

The Office of College Readiness Programs invited the K.U.B.S. Program participants and their parents to our beautiful college campus on Saturday, June 11, 2016 for a day of workshops and team building with KU student mentors. The K.U.B.S. Program participants were former participants of the College Can Be a Reality Program, and will be entering middle school in the fall. The K.U.B.S. Program is an initiative of the Office of College Readiness. It is an effort to remain connected to the College Can Be a Reality Program through the participants' middle school years.
