Engage in Co-Curricular Activities with Our Campus Community

Co-curricular activities complement classroom learning and are a vital component of the Summer Scholars Program. Students will have many opportunities to engage in student development and social experiences outside the classroom. 

Students are invited to join evening activities Monday through Friday where they will connect with fellow Summer Scholars from around the globe, meet UM undergraduate students, and interact with University of Miami personnel. Students gain confidence in their ability to navigate collegiate life through a wide array of college preparation workshops and social programming.*

Mentorship Program

To promote student success every student is paired with a Summer Scholars Program staff mentor to provide student support and connect them with campus resources during their journey at the University of Miami.

Learning Communities 

Students are grouped in learning communities called academic tracks, which are cohorts of students who enroll in the same two courses, share common academic goals, and work collaboratively in and out of the classroom. Students form supportive friendships with their peers, as they learn, study and engage with the college community together.
