The Summer Scholars program is designed for motivated sophomores and juniors who want to get a head start on their college careers. While in the program, students get a preview of college life at a respected university in the world-class City of Chicago. They also acquire life skills through their involvement, as they experience campus life, meet other students from around the world, and participate in various educational, cultural, and recreational activities.
