For 60 years, Summer College has been the home of pre-college study at Syracuse University.

Summer College pre-college programs and courses, offered in ten of SU’s schools and colleges, reflect the richness and diversity of the majors and minors at Syracuse University. All Summer College programs and courses are college-level and led by Syracuse University faculty and instructors. Residential students live in a residence hall and eat their meals in a dining hall. Field trips and activities on campus give students the opportunity to relax, have fun, and make new friends. Live on campus, learn from Syracuse University instructors, and have fun!  Join us next summer: June 27 – August 7, 2020.

Being a big sports fan, I always wanted to be a part of the ‘Cuse family. When I found out about the Sport Management program through Syracuse University Summer College, I knew I had to attend. During the program, we learned a variety of topics including marketing, sport analytics, contract negotiations, and the day-to-day operations of the Athletic Department at Syracuse. I finished the program knowing with 100% confidence that I wanted to major in Sport Management. If you are thinking about attending the program, you should definitely do it! I went not knowing anyone, but left with a bunch of new friends from all over the country. My time at Syracuse University Summer College encouraged me to follow my passion and pursue Sport Management as my major. Those few weeks gave me a great taste of what college life will be like, and I can’t wait!

I still could not believe it, when I arrived on campus on that Saturday in July, I instantly fell in love with the Syracuse University campus and energy. I was amazed at how big and unique the campus was. Everyone helping us to get moved in and settled was so patient, and understanding that we were far from home. When my classes began, it was exhilarating taking a campus bus to the warehouse, where Fashion classes were being held. Once I arrived on the 7th floor, my breath was taken away. It made me love the idea of becoming a fashion designer even more. I loved this creative space. I met my professors and the session began. I learned how to train my mind to think fast and effectively, making sure my work was always handed in on time, and the importance of working in teams. I enjoyed my experience so much that I decided to come to Syracuse for undergrad!
