New Students - Don't Forget to Apply for Jumpstart by July 12! Arrive Early and Make Connections!


Contributed by Don Austin

Go camping. Join a ropes course challenge. Enjoy local food. Volunteer in the community. These are just some of the things you could do do by participating in the Jumpstart program!

Jumpstart is a pre-semester program offered to incoming first-year and transfer students, giving them the opportunity to make early connections  on campus and beyond.

Each program has a different focus, and selected participants will join in activities and exercises designed around those themes. August 18–20, 2019

There is no cost for new first-year and transfer students to participate in this program, but there is a selection process. You can read about each program and then choose which one to apply to.
