From late June to early August
, OUS students live on campus and participate in two academic courses taught by Colgate faculty, with emphasis on critical reading, analytical writing, and quantitative literacy skills.
We recognize that not all incoming students have equal access to resources while they are in high school. Summer Institute exists to ensure that students who have proven their intellect and determination are fully prepared for the university's academic rigor.
In addition to taking courses, students are introduced to various resources available on campus, including the libraries
, career services
, and financial aid
