We are currently working on this for summer 2022. Students can expect a mix of academic coursework, structured community building activities, and social events.

Outside of class, pre-college students will have the chance optionally to connect with one another, and IC first-year and continuing sophomores, juniors, and seniors in a variety of noncredit academic activities, social events, and performances coordinated by academic and student affairs offices across Ithaca College. The IC Event Calendar will be one place where cross-campus events will be posted.

A team of dedicated Residential Advisors (RAs) will be working to connect Summer College students with one another and the larger IC community.

Yes, a computer is required for participation. You will have access to the Ithaca College internet service while on campus. Although students may use their phones to engage with faculty, their peers, and the course content, computers will be helpful (if not necessary) for completing assignments.

Faculty may use Canvas (canvas.ithaca.edu), our campus learning management system, to support course activities. It is also possible that some interactions may rely on ZOOM, embedded in IC's Canvas platform. Information for accessing the college's online systems will be delivered via email the week before your course begins. Students will receive an IC ID number and an activation email from the Registrar's Office (homer@ithaca.edu) with the next steps for activating your Ithaca College system and ithaca.edu login credentials.

Textbook requirements will be published on or around May 1st at ithaca.edu/summercollege.

A residential coordinator is in charge of non-academic portions of the program including "residence life." A staff of "resident assistants" (RA), in addition, will be working with students during the program. This team of RAs is closely supervised by both the residential coordinator and the program director. The program's faculty director, Joslyn Brenton, also has specific responsibility for academics and academic advising.
