An annual conference aimed at preparing students for college is being held virtually this year. The 37th AMBYESE Conference brings students together with professionals from various fields for relevant workshops. The Conference is free to participating high schools and is typically held each year at the UConn Stamford Campus. The theme this year is COVID-19 and the impact on College Access and Student Learning. Professionals from the medicine/healthcare, engineering, law, finance, marketing, and science fields among others are participating. There will be a special workshop regarding how students who rank in the top 5 to 10 percent of their class can apply for the highly competitive and world-renowned Pre-College Programs at The University of Notre Dame. The conference traditionally has drawn more than 200 college-bound high school students from New York and Connecticut. Corporate partners include Linde, IBM, and PepsiCo. Among the participating high schools are Bethel, Danbury, Immaculate High School, Henry Abbott Tech, Masuk, Trumbull and Wooster School.
