Summer Institute

Tower HallFor some students, the transition from high school to college life can be a difficult one. There's a different way of thinking, working, and studying. Add to that living away from home and interacting with students from a variety of backgrounds, and the experience can be overwhelming.

Utica College's Opportunity Programs offers a variety of services to ease that transition. One such effort is Summer Institute, a five-week program that acquaints pre-freshman students with the campus and campus life. All Higher Education Opportunity Program students are required to attend Summer Institute. Other students looking to strengthen their academic skills are welcome to attend as well.
