Power Up

Power Up for College Success

When you enroll in Power Up, you’ll move in two days early and get familiar with the UMass campus. You’ll attend a College Success workshop and strategize how to best plan and manage your education. You’ll be grounded in an awareness of the campus and its resources, and you’ll begin building your confidence, your independence, and your sense of responsibility.

After participating in the program, you’ll be armed with good academic habits, you’ll be empowered to make smart choices, and you’ll have a core group of friends.
