Siena Summer Advantage


Description of Program
Sometimes students find it challenging to navigate college life and could use a little guidance finding their way. SSA is designed to address this concern. It will be comprised of a 3 credit Core Course (either Introduction to Philosophy or General Psychology) and one 1 credit College Transition (CT) course. The CT course will include workshops and discussions that are tailored to easing the transition from high school to college, and better prepare you for what lies ahead.  The 3 credit courses will be comprised of small groups that will meet four times a week for 2 hours and 15 minutes each, and the CT course will include 1 hour sessions, 3 days a week.  The program is being offered to incoming local students at a discounted rate of $900.00 for all 4 credits, and will run from Monday July 8th through Friday August 2nd (last day of class is Aug. 1st).
