Overnight trip to Soka, Chapman, and UCR
What an exciting time our GEAR UP students had, attending an overnight visit to Soka, Chapman, and UCR! They had a chance to attend a college volleyball game and even got invited onto the court so the UCR players could meet them. They also had a chance to tour the facility and experience the history and traditions of the schools!
