Students chooose two seminars from the areas of creative writing, expository writing, oral communication, and science. Recreation activities are offered in the afternoons, and sponsored social events are scheduled for evenings and the weekend. Participants in the Summer Challenge Program interact in a small, non-competitive atmosphere that enocrages independent thinking and group participation. The courses are designed to build on high-school learning and expose students to the standards of college-level work. For more information, go to
