College Shadow Day

On March 19, 2013, 8 high school Mathematics, Engineering, Science, Achievement (MESA) students from North County Trade Tech High School were matched with their university counterparts in the San Diego State University (SDSU) MESA Engineering & Maximizing Science Potential program, based on major and interests.

The SDSU students allowed the high schoolers to ‘shadow’ them throughout the day, which meant bringing them along to classes, visiting labs, touring the beautiful SDSU campus, and sharing their college experience (both good and bad). For  some high school students, this was their first college experience or their first time on a college campus.

The San Diego MESA Alliance would like to thank North County Trade Tech High School Principal Philip Lutgen for his support and the SDSU MESA students who volunteered to be shadowed:  Jessica Aloisio, Sannisha Castillo, Lucas Gonzalez, Luis Martinez, Steven Prsha, Adrian Roman, and Steven Tran.
