Student Quote:

What are you most looking forward to at Summer Springboard? — “Being able to submerge myself in a new environment with people that have similar interests as I do.” Samantha (Medicine & Healthcare) 

Highlights:

  • Move In Day
    • Over 90 students from all over the country (and world!) moved into UC Berkeley for two weeks of Summer Springboard fun!
  • Academic Programs
    • In addition to the Medicine & Healthcare, Business & Entrepreneurship, Computer Science, and Engineering courses we had last session, we also have a new track for this session – College Tours and Test Prep.
    • It’s not just about getting into the best school, it’s about figuring out the best schools for you. This program takes you to a variety of college campuses so you can identify the type of university that is uniquely suited to your personality and style.
  • UC Berkeley Campus Tour
    • The students walked all around the UC Berkely campus and even got up close and personal with a dinosaur.
    • Inside of the Valley Life Sciences Building, you’ll find a freestanding mount of Tyrannosaurus rex is at the centerpiece of the atrium.
