Students who participate in a summer program before attending college:
“Admission counselors love to hear about the activities you’ve found engaging over the summer, but there aren’t any particular activities we look for on applications. We realize that a variety of options are available to each of you—what we love hear about is how you’ve learned from the experiences you’ve had and how you’ve grown, both as a student and as a person.”
