Day 1 of Summer Springboard (Session 1):

Student Quote:

“I’m excited to experience the Berkeley culture, hands-on programs, and to meet new people.”


  • Over 80 students from all over the country (and world!) moved into Unit 1 Residence Hall for two weeks of fun!
  • Day 1 is all about getting to know one another. After the students have settled in, there are icebreakers, introductions, and fun activities to learn more about everyone.
  • Our nurturing residential staff set the tone for the program, supporting students as they adjust to living in a dormitory and creating a fun and inclusive community. The residential staff have extensive experience working with teens and include a seasoned Campus Director and one Resident Advisor (RA) for every 10 students.
