COSTA MESA — A dozen local high school students on Monday morning piled into two vans, which were to take them on a tour of Northern and Central California universities to see what college life could be like beyond the Orange Curtain. Embarking with their luggage and a stuffed purple-colored unicorn, the 12 headed north for the six-day trip with Save Our Youth, a nonprofit dedicated to helping students make positive decisions in Costa Mesa's largely lower-income Westside.

LOS ANGELES - The pre-game excitement before a college football game - where throngs of people are dressed in school colors, barbecuing and having a good time - is enough to get anyone energized. But for about two-dozen Costa Mesa sixth-grade students, just being on a university campus, let alone the pre-football game revelry, was an eye opener. "Everywhere I've been has been awesome," said Andrea Rubalcava on Saturday at the University of Southern California campus, just before the Trojans faced Colorado at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

Deirdre Newman UCI CAMPUS -- Before coming to the university to study electrical engineering, Raul Bejar went to Estancia High School in Costa Mesa and participated in the Save Our Youth scholarship program. On Tuesday, Bejar shared his experience of growing up in Costa Mesa, all the while focused on going to college, with more than 200 Latino students from the district's middle and high schools. While this was the fifth annual Latino Youth Conference, there was one important difference this year: The conference took place on the grounds of UC Irvine to give the Latino students a personal introduction to college life.

You guys need to do more than the average student," Bob Sterling said to his ninth-grade students Friday morning in his daily attempt to inspire them.

Tony Altobelli For friends and family of Princeton University freshman Bruce Hancock, the pride stretches from here all the way to New Jersey. "We're happy for him, but obviously we miss him back here," said John Carney, Hancock's former track coach at Costa Mesa High. "We still keep in touch and it's great to hear he's doing so well back there." At a recent Princeton Invitational Indoor meet, Hancock ran a 4:11 mile, bettering his previous personal best time by over six seconds.

It was the cartoon that finally got me. I was sitting in an auditorium full of parents who, like me, were preparing to send a child off to college. I was on campus because my youngest son was attending an orientation program for incoming freshmen, but these days universities are savvy enough to know that offering a parallel "parent orientation" is a dandy way to get Mom and Dad on board with revenue-generating activities, from association fees to football games. So while my son was learning the ins and outs of college life and choosing his classes for the fall, I was treated to seminars on everything from technology to how much bad dorm food I'll have to pay for each semester.

Regeneration is a key part of nature, so perhaps it's fitting that the art display at Irvine Valley College's new Life Sciences building arose out of discarded materials. When school officials, Irvine Chamber of Commerce members and others gather on campus Wednesday for a ribbon-cutting ceremony, one wall of the building's interior will sport a mural and a series of jars holding cycad trees. The surfaces of the mural and jars feature mosaic designs made from broken plates, stained glass, tile, ceramics and more.

Marisa O'Neil A casual observer taking a walk on the Orange Coast College campus might wonder why students keep looking younger and younger. Some students look barely old enough to be out of high school -- and, in fact, they're not. About 60 of them are students at Middle College High School, which is part of the Newport-Mesa Unified School District but sits on a corner of the college's campus. In addition to their regular high school classes, Middle College students must take at least three academic units at OCC. But half of the high school's students take six or more units, which they can use to transfer to a four-year college, Principal Bob Nanney said.
