Congratulations to our high school graduates who are now rising college freshmen! They have officially become our DTS College Class of 2025. They received their college t-shirts, as agraduation gift from DTS, and shared some big smiles as they gathered for our two week Bridge to College workshop to help prepare them for the transition to college.
Emerald, who is headed to UC Merced in the fall, said that Bridge to College taught her “what it is going to be like to live away from my parents. And while this is something I have never done before, I take comfort in knowing my DTS classmates will be going through this transition too. It feels better that I am not alone.”
In addition to the emotional comfort provided by their peers, the students have been equipped with all the physical comforts needed for their dorm rooms. We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of donors who have ensured that all 22 college students moving to campuses around the country will have the essentials they need to create their new home away from home.
