To help Summer Start students become familiar with campus resources and connect to campus life, many of the departments across campus will be offering activities and events throughout the summer. Students will be encouraged to participate in those activities related to their academic and personal areas of interest.
Through their involvement in campus life and by interacting with their peers, students will gain a greater sense of belonging – which contributes significantly to their sense of well-being and overall success in college. To help promote this type of involvement, Summer Start students will be required to participate in a number of campus activities as part of their first-year seminar. Most options will be free campus events, although a select few will have a cost attached.
