      BOSTON UNIVERSITY

      Do you excel at writing, work for the school newspaper, or thinking about Boston as a college destination?

      If so, you'll want to consider this special opportunity: Boston University's Summer Journalism Institute, presented by the College of Communication and the New England Center for Investigative Reporting.

      Each summer, high school students from around the country and world travel to Boston to learn the craft of journalism from award-winning reporters. They start each day in class to cover core skills but soon everyone is out interviewing sources, checking facts and writing original news stories.

      Students leave with a solid foundation in news literacy, writing, interviewing and research – skills that any student can apply in college and beyond, whether or not they pursue journalism as a career.

      But we make time for fun, too. Students see what Boston is all about – from Red Sox games to the historic Freedom Trail. They also have an opportunity to schedule college tours and meet with the admissions team at BU and other nearby campuses.

      Two-week sessions begin on June 24, July 8, and July 22. To apply, students will complete our online application and submit their unofficial transcript (including recent grades), a recommendation from a teacher, and a letter explaining their interest in the institute.

      *Students who apply and are registered by March 1, 2019, will receive a $400 discount. To qualify for this special promotion, use discount code: BUSummer19.

      EXPERIENCE AMERICAN SUMMER CAMPS

      Interested in fashion or STEM camps focused on game design?

      Project Fashion and Game Experience are summer camps that give creative-minded students an opportunity to explore a career through classes taught by industry professionals, hands-on projects, and company tours. Both camps create an environment where students can discover what role suits them best and whether they truly want to explore their chosen field as a career before committing time and money to the pursuit after high school.

      I know a lot of students are concerned about whether they can be successful doing what they love, whether it's artistic, technical, or even business-oriented. That’s why we want to show students and their parents that they’re both multi-faceted, rapidly growing industries with roles and opportunities they may not know about yet.

      STEVENS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY

      You may not know exactly what you want to do yet, but you know whatever it is, it’s going to be big. When you enroll in a pre-college program at Stevens, you can explore your ideas and interests in a pressure-free, inspiring academic environment that welcomes big thinkers.

      What distinguishes our pre-college programs from others is that you get to create something from to start to finish: a business plan, a video game, an investment portfolio, a short animation. Yes, you’ll leave with a stronger college application, you’ll try out a potential major, get a taste of what campus life is really like and make some new friends. But: designing your own portfolio project with cutting-edge technology…in state-of-the-art facilities…while studying alongside our exceptional and talented faculty…while exploring New York City? Only at Stevens!

      Each one of our unique programs gives you unprecedented exposure to a cutting-edge field of study — and the inspiration and confidence to pursue it later if you choose.

      All of our programs are carefully designed by our faculty to be creative, project-driven, hands-on immersions that give you not just real college experience, but real world experience too. By night you’ll live in the dorms, by day you’ll visit major corporations, work on a tangible project and learn alongside experts. You can choose to participate in more than one program during the summer, as long as the program dates don’t overlap.

      DEADLINE: Priority Deadline for Stevens Pre-College Programs is February 15, 2019. Priority Deadline is for students who want to secure their seat in our programs early or want to be considered for Financial Aid. We are currently accepting applications on a rolling basis until programs reach capacity.
