Each year, 8th grade students at the Malone Middle School gain an understanding of college through two college visits. In October 2016, students visited Clarkson University to experience college-life for themselves! While there, Clarkson students gave the 8th graders a tour of classrooms, athletic facilities, labs, dorms, and dining halls.
