A Glimpse of the Future

The Summer Immersion Program offers students the chance to “try on” possible careers, learn directly from the best of the best, and visit companies and organizations that could be a future employer for your son or daughter. Along the way, students will collaborate with other like-minded peers, learn more about college life, and experience what it means to be independent.
