Welcome to SummerStart!

Michelle Singletary

The SummerStart program is a six-week summer residential program that is designed specifically for incoming first-year students to ease the transition to college life. You’ll be introduced to the academic, social, and cultural life at SU and get a head start on taking a leadership role on campus, beginning from “day one.” Academically, you will have already earned 7-9 credits toward your degree, even before your first semester begins! Socially, you’ll feel comfortable and confident on campus. What a great opportunity to help other incoming students make the transition you already made through SummerStart! Browse our web site and discover the scope and strategies of the SummerStart program, specifically aimed at supporting your academic success as well as your enjoyment of the college experience.

We invite you to explore the possibilities of SummerStart, and look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best wishes,
Michelle Singletary
Director, SummerStart
