Come Join Us For Summer 2015! Summer START is designed to assist new freshmen with the transition from high school to college through five weeks of academic courses and co-curricular activities. Summer START will provide a strong introduction to the culture of NC State and to the city of Raleigh. This year will mark the sixth year of Summer START. Summer START’s living and learning experience will be limited to 400 freshmen. Last year's program represented students from 8 different countries, 11 different states and spread across 40 different majors representing all 10 colleges at NC State. Summer START works closely with each college to ensure students will be enrolled in academic courses towards their curriculum to get them on the path to graduation. In addition to up to eight credit hours of university coursework, many optional co-curricular, college based, leadership, and service programs are planned throughout the week and on the weekends. This is your chance to “Get Ahead of the Pack.” Summer START takes place from June 21st through August 1st. Students who participate are encouraged to live on campus with other START students in Tucker or Owen Residence Halls. There are several ways to gather additional information (such as cost of program, advising, parent orientation, financial aid opportunities) as well as express interest in attending the program. Students will be selected from those who respond to this invitation on a first come first served basis. Replies must be received by May 1, 2015 through our online interest form.
