Game Day Event

Local youth student-athletes and teams will engage in an on-campus guided tour, interactive guest speaker with free food, college and career development discussion, and a complimentary UC Merced Athletics event. The goal of this program is to inspire and motivate our youth student-athletes to aspire to achieve the highest levels possible. Through discussions and athletic engagement, we will address the important pieces towards becoming an intercollegiate student-athlete. 


Guided Campus Tour

Provided by the UC Merced Office of Admissions Visitor Center, a guided tour is provided by a current student. Parents and students are provided with an in-depth look into the 21st century's first research institution. As the newest UC campus, UC Merced provides education to a diverse group of students with aspirations of making an impact in today's world. 


Guest Speaker

A light snack and beverage is provided for all participants prior to engaging in an interactive discussion and guest speaker. Participants will have the opportunity to hear from a UC Merced campus affiliate from different departments. Students will then engage in a discussion to understand the possible pathways towards achieving their dream jobs and lifestyles with the guidance of SAFE members.
