Stop by and explore the journey of three Clemson MAT interns at the new Greenville Early College (GEC). During their practicum experience during the fall of 2012, these three Clemson graduate students went "all-in" to meet the educational needs of about forty rising sixth graders in a personalized learning environment that provides students with the tools and skills to assist them towards becoming the first in their families to attend college. Housed at The University Center of Greenville, GEC is a partnership between Greenville County Schools, Clemson University, Furman University, and USC Upstate. This unique, "college connection" introduces and provides the inaugural sixth grade class with college experiences, enrichment, and academic activities to motivate students towards the path of college attendance.
