Celebrate 50 Years
Diversity and Multicultural Affairs

If you're not sure what to do following high school, you're not alone. You simply need a chance to explore your interests. That's why we created the Summer Youth Program. The program emphasizes fun, hands-on activities, with the goal of introducing you to college life. You will be working in teams with students who face the same concerns about their future. Participation in the program will improve your communication skills, and you will be encouraged to think about career options as well.
