Academic Journey introduces American Indian high school students to the culture of college through hands on, realistic experiences. Students visit actual college classrooms with college instructors. Recently, they toured Vermilion Community College in Ely, MN. Students learned how to properly do a controlled burn for the natural resource/forestry classes. They also learned what Vermilion has to offer them as a college. It was a very exciting experience for the Academic Journey crew.  On Thursday, February 13th they will venture to Hibbing Community College.
