Seminars are designed to be small, allowing students to engage in an intensive exploration of a specific topic through lectures, discussions, and individual and group work. Students also benefit from a college workshop that gets them thinking about what they can do in high school to maximize the effectiveness of their college applications.
The Summer Preview program also ensures that students benefit from a variety of structured social activities with their peers, gaining exposure to Boston University and the city of Boston—as well as the expectations of college life.
Summer Preview is open to commuter and residential students. Students must be 14 or older to live in the dorm.Apply now! »
