We've designed our Summer Preview seminars to be small to allow students to immerse themselves in a specific topic through lectures, discussions, and individual and group work. Our students also benefit from a college workshop that will help them maximize their high school studies in order to be better prepared when the time comes to fill out college applications.
We also offer a variety of planned social group activities so you can get to know both Boston University and the city of Boston.
Summer Preview is open to both commuter and residential students. Please note that you must be 14 years or older to live in the dorm.
