The Pedrozzi Young Scholars had the exciting opportunity to visit St. Mary’s College for a fun day of tours and activities. All Pedrozzi Young Scholars were invited to attend the event, and 38 PYS and their families were able to attend. The beautiful day started with a buffet lunch in Oliver Hall. PYS then broke up into groups and were led on tours of the dorms, classrooms, chapel, and athletic facilities led by St. Mary’s student athletes. It was a beautiful day to walk around campus and enjoy the surrounding Moraga Hills.
The PYS then gathered in an outdoor pavilion for a Q & A led by Bre Saukas, Assistant Athletic Director for Student Services. Bre led conversations with the student athletes about their college experiences and asked them to share advice with the young scholars as they prepare for their college and career journeys. The day was concluded with the St. Mary’s College vs. Santa Clara basketball game, where SMC won 77 to 58.
