    SUMMER PROGRAMS
    Summer Programs  
    According to College Express,  Pre-college summer programs allow high school students to get a taste of college life, preview their dream schools, and give a boost to their college applications. Many colleges and universities offer summer programs, such as Boston University's Summer Challenge Program, Brown University's Summer @Brown, and Stevens Institute of Technology's Business Program.  It may be tempting to spend the entire summer at the beach or by the pool (and you certainly should do a little of that!), but why not use some of your free time to learn something new and make yourself a more attractive candidate for admission? In case you need convincing, here are just a few of the benefits of spending some of your summer on a college campus. College Express lists 5 reasons to engage in a summer program: (1) gift of time; (2) gift of space; (3) gift of attention; (4) a chance to learn the lay of the land; and (5) a chance to meet new people.
