Summer Experience

Summer Experience: 

LUSSI Begins with a three week intensive college preparatory experience and lives on throughout the rest of your years at Lehigh University. For this summer, we are looking for students to join the 5th cohort of LUSSI and make a difference on Lehigh's campus. 

  • Dates: July 7th, 2018- July 27th, 2018. Students will be expected to stay on Lehigh's campus for the duration of the program. They will not be allowed to go home and come back on the weekends so we encourage families to plan ahead of time to avoid any conflicts. 
  • Cost: The program is completely free! We will cover the cost of your travel, room and board, your meal plan, classes, textbooks and trips. 
  • What the students need to bring: Imagine anything you will need for three weeks and bring that! This includes: pillows, linens, towels, personal items, clothes, snacks, school supplies, backpack, etc. A more extensive list will be shared with the students who are accepted into the program.  
  • What the program involves: Classes, weekend excursions, Professional Development workshops, Financial Literacy workshops, Campus Resources tour, a lot of fun and a new family! The program has dedicated staff who will serve as Teacher Assistants as well as Resident Assistants to the LUSSI students. The Resident Assistants will live with the LUSSI students for the duration of the program and serve as mentors, confidants and resouces throughout their time at Lehigh.  To specify, you will not earn any college credit with the classes you take during this summer program. However, these classes will undoubtedly help you and prepare you for your educational experience once the academic year starts in the fall!
