Session 2: July 25-August 6, 2021

Bulldog Scholars Academy (BSA) is offering modified programming this summer to accommodate social distancing requirements. Incoming freshmen who have been admitted to the university are invited to enroll in one of two 2-week sessions. These sessions are residential and designed to support academic and social transitions into college.A registration form will be available shortly. In the meantime, please feel free to reach out to with questions. 

Here is a brief snapshot of the summer experience:

Academics: Students will learn to think like a college student by exploring a "big question." This experience will be hands-on and interactive.  

Grownish 101: Participants will be encouraged to think about what it means to be a college student by engaging in a series of personal explorations and skill building activities that address some of the following questions: Who am I? What kind of impact do I want to make? What are my strengths? What are my changing roles and responsibilites? How do I manage my time and think proactively? What kinds of relationships do I want to cultivate? How do I manage finances and plan for the future? 

Extracurricular Activities: The summer will be packed with fun and inspiring activities. In 2019, scholars participated in team building activities, intramural sports, games, arts and crafts, outdoor adventures, fitness classes, and much more. . 

COVID-19 Precautions: The university follows CDC guidelines for controlling the spread of COVID-19. We will provide Academy-specific updates on this page and encourage all students to check the university's Coronavirus page regularly for updates.
