Program Overview:
Now in its forty-eighth year, Cornell University Summer College provides academically talented students who have completed their
sophomore, junior, or senior year in high school by June 2015 an unparalleled opportunity to experience what it is like to live and learn at a
great Ivy League university, take real university courses, work closely with Cornell’s world-renowned faculty members, earn college credit,
explore majors and career options, get a jump on successful college applications, make friends from around the world, and much more.

Program Offering:
Through three outstanding programs, Summer College students focus on areas that include architecture; art; business; college success;
engineering; film; humanities; law and politics; life, environmental, agriculture, and applied social sciences; literature; medicine, science,
and biological research; psychology; veterinary medicine; and writing.

Although academics are a crucial component of Summer College, learning extends far beyond the classroom walls.
Sophomores are eligible for six programs, including four 3-week options, Body, Mind, and Health: Perspectives for Future Medical Professionals; Freedom and Justice: The Law in Theory and Practice; Hotel Operations Management; and On Camera: Studies in Film
Analysis; College to Career (one-week CALS); and the six-week option, CollegeSuccess: Critical Reading and Thinking. Juniors and seniors can participate in all (more than twenty-five) options.

Sample Schedule / Life on Campus / Extra Opportunities:
Sessions about the college application process are offered throughout the summer, with information on the art of filling out applications, the
value of campus visits, and the nitty-gritty of college interviews. Cornell’s Undergraduate Admissions staff answers questions about
applying to selective colleges. Students may also take part in a half-day crash course in college study skills before classes begin and in
math, study skills, and writing workshops throughout the summer.

Students enjoy theater parties; athletic activities, including basketball, volleyball, aerobics, yoga, and intramural sports; weekend dances; a
student-organized show; and get-togethers with faculty members to discuss current topics. They also produce Summer College’s weekly
newspaper and its literary supplement. Free concerts and lectures are offered throughout the summer.

Life on Campus
As a Summer College student, you'll share a room or quad in one of our residence halls on North Campus. The buildings contain study areas, laundry rooms, piano lounges, and main lounges for studying and large gatherings. Young men and women live in separate units or floors with close supervision by residence staff. The staff to student ratio is 1:25.
