Accepted Students CONNECT online!
February 18, 2012: The program is filling up quickly! Accepted students may connect pre-program with other students by joining the Summer 2012 Facebook Group. This closed group allows students to connect to arrange housing or carpools if needed, or maybe just start counting down the days until an amazing summer ahead! 🙂
The facebook group is closed to the public and by invitation only. If you are an accepted student wishing to be added to the facebook group, or if you don’t have facebook, but would like assistance connecting for housing/transportation arrangements, please email Jerusha Aman, Community Outreach Liaison, firstname.lastname@example.org.
