Start of Summer Session 2018

Summer Session 2018 is off to a great start! We welcomed students from 20 countries and 18 states on July 1, and after placement testing and orientation, we are fully underway.
Whether making ice cream in Chemistry, studying lighting in Studio Art, joining an intramural team, or spending time with new friends, Summer Session students have packed a lot into the first few days. Scroll through our Week 1 Photo Album and see for yourself!
