Student Quote:

What are you most looking forward to at Summer Springboard? — “I’m most looking forward to the final project of creating and presenting our own business plan.” Andrew (Business & Entrepreneurship) 

Highlights:

  • Move In Day
    • Over 60 students from all over the country (and world!) moved into Saybrook College for two weeks of fun!
  • Academic Programs
    • We are honored to have acclaimed professional experts as the instructors for Summer Springboard.
    • From the Chief Nursing Officer for the Western Connecticut Health Network to the inventor of the Voice-of-Market® process, and much more, these instructors will be providing students a deep dive of specific subject areas.
  • Yale Campus Tour
    • Fun fact from the campus tour – the statue of the man sitting with his foot up is Theodore Woolsey, who used to use his foot to push the crew team’s boat into competition, and every time that he pushed the boat in, the crew team would win.
    • Students now rub the foot of the statue before a big test or event that they need luck for.
