Summer College - On Campus
At Summer College – On Campus, students navigate daily life much like a college student – they take a college-level course, live in a residence hall, have meals with friends in a dining hall, and participate in social activities and events on the Syracuse University campus. Students build meaningful connections with instructors and classmates in a collaborative environment. All classes are held in Syracuse University facilities. The average instructor to student ratio is 9:1, which allows students to have more individualized attention, guidance, and a more personalized experience.
