Motivational Conference and University Visits

puente students at FSU Transfer Motivational conference 2010Every year, Puente students from all over California gather for the Puente Motivational Conference at a major university. They attend workshops and events designed to inspire and inform them about higher education and Puente as a statewide phenomenon.

In addition, De Anza College Puente students visit several universities to get a feel for University of California campuses, Cal State Universities, and Private universities, as well as urban and rural settings

Here are a few photos of these events:
