2018 Dates To Be Announced
A 4-week summer residential experience for new freshman, sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, Office of Diversity and Inclusion and the College of Social Science and Professional Studies, designed to jump start your life as a Ranger - by helping you earn credits early while becoming familiar with campus resources, professors, other students, and college life! .
- Earn 3 college credits and develop your academic skills
The centerpiece of the experience is a three-credit general education course taught by Dr. Chris Hudspeth, which introduces you to a college level course and the expectations you will encounter as a student. Students who complete 30 credits in their first year are more likely to graduate. Get a jump start on reaching that goal!
- Connect with a network of resources
Your student mentors will be there to assist you with the academic components of the program, but also to help you become familiar with college life inside and outside of classroom. Your mentor will be available to support you throughout your first year in college.
- Build strong, lasting relationships
While this may seem like an intense learning experience, you will have time for relaxation, socializing and sharing cultural experiences with your new friends. It doesn't stop at the end of the summer, you will continue to share at least one course each semester with your fellow summer scholars. Summer scholars living in the residence halls will also share a common residence hall community.
