Students selected as Chesick Scholars will attend a five-week summer session from the beginning of July to the first week in August. Each student will enroll in 2 classes:
- one 1-credit quantitative/science class meeting 8 hours per week
- one 1-credit writing-intensive class, meeting 8 hours per week
Both courses will have regular daily assignments and exams, and will be graded. The topics of these courses will be listed elsewhere, as they will change from summer to summer.
This is a residential program, so all students will live together in the dorms, participate in classes during the week and recreational activities and trips during the weekends.
There will be a graduate residential director (RD) and two student residential assistants (RAs) living with the Chesick Scholars during the summer program. They will help with orientation to the campus and resources, organize evening and weekend study sessions, and plan weekend activities.
