Barcroft Elementary’s 5th grade class visited Howard University on April 4th. The goal for the trip was to expose students to college and excite them for their future college and career options. Students spent a beautiful morning on campus completing a scavenger hunt, during which they learned about significant alumni for whom many of the buildings are named at this historically black university. In addition to this rich lesson in culture and history, students got a “taste” of college life in the dining hall at lunch, much to everyone’s enjoyment.  We appreciate our great hosts at Howard University!
