Summer is the BEST time to explore the student’s interests away from the daily grind of school. Summer can be an awesome experience! Plus, believe it or not summer experiences can be great preparation for the careers of tomorrow.
What do they like to do? What skills do they want to explore? Maybe a college campus stay would be a great experience?
All great stuff when thinking about their future! We’ve gathered up a few (!) of our academic/career-minded favorites to share with you.
Important quote we read from one college admissions counselor…
“It’s not the program/job/internship/experience – it’s what the student takes from it. There is no ‘hierarchy’ that says one experience is ‘better’ than another.”
Just something to keep in mind–college admissions counselors will not view a program more favorably simply because it costs more money.
Note: Not all programs have been updated for 2019. We’ll continue to monitor and update.
