IDEAS will take place June 15-19, 2015

IDEAS (Investigating, Discovering, and Excelling in Academics and Service) is a series of five-day academic camps for high school students to explore an area of interest: computer science, mathematics/statistics, media, mock trial, or theatre arts. Each individual camp is designed to give a college-level experience investigating each particular field. IDEAS provides a look into career options and college plans for those considering a future in these important areas of study. With fun explorations and activities to make each day a great experience, IDEAS is perfect for anyone interested in an excellent way to spend a week of summer!

Detailed information about the overall program, the various camps, and the application process are provided to the right under "Dig Deeper." Top preference will be given to those who apply by January 31, 2015, so please apply as soon as possible.

What former participants are saying:

"IDEAS taught me many things about career choices I wasn't aware of. They did this through hands-on learning with great professors and other students my age. This made it a very fun, knowledgeable atmosphere. I also have to say that it was the most exciting, real-life college visit I have been on. I don't think I'll ever regret it because of the people I met and the things I learned." Madigan M.

"The lessons are interesting and fun, and spending time with new friends during various activities was an added bonus!" Jordan H.

"It made me see math in a different perspective—seeing how statistics are used in business and science and not just in a classroom." Nathan M.
