Welcome to Summer Session 2016

Summer Session 2016 is officially underway! We welcomed students from 19 states and 23 countries this weekend, and we’re off to a great start. Today marked the first full day of classes and afternoon activities. When they’re not busy in the classroom, art studios, and on the fields and courts, students are settling in to their dorms, making new friends, and deciding upon weekend excursions to local shopping centers, movie theatres, and one of the best ice cream stands around, complete with mini golf, bumper boats, batting cages, and more. On Sunday, the entire community will head to High Meadow Resort in Granby, Conn., for a day of swimming, games, fun contests, and relaxation.
