THINK is fast-paced academic program. As such, students spend the majority of their time in the classroom during the day and studying in the evenings. However, we believe making social connections and having fun are also important parts of a summer program experience. In addition to coursework, students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities planned for the evenings and weekends. Two larger, off campus, field trips take place on the second and third Saturday of the program.

Living in the dorms and connecting in and out of the classroom has led to the formation of many great friendships among our participants.
