How might my summer program affect my college or career choice?

When you attend a summer program on a college campus, you are showing that you devoted meaningful time on your academics and that you are focused on learning more about a specific topic. When you participate in a residential program you study in college classrooms with college faculty and perhaps research in labs. In the evenings, you live in a dorm, dine in the dining halls, and enjoy post-academic programs. You really get a real feel of what it’s like to be on a college campus.
