Summer Academy 2018 Tentative schedule

Summer Academy Residential Living

Summer Academy students choosing to live and eat on campus are housed together for two weeks in the same residence hall. As a part of this social learning community you will deepen your understanding of yourself and develop meaningful relationships. The activities planned throughout the week after class and over the weekend, and the spontaneous happenings in the hall, will help you make the most of this pre-college experience and encourage you to become more healthy, engaged and successful. The Summer Academy activities listed below support the Four Cornerstones of UVM’s Department of Residential Life – Enhancing Learning, Community & Civic Engagement, Advancing Diversity & Inclusion, and Health & Wellness.
