Summer UB 2018





Summer UB consists of living in the (air-conditioned) residence hall, learning new concepts and course content, living with a roommate, attending the Great River Shakespeare Festival, job shadow opportunities (seniors only), as well as many other new and exciting opportunities.  Summer UB will allow students to get a preview of their college prep courses (math, science, English, and Senior Seminar if you are a rising senior, Skills, or a World Language (if available) and as close to a college experience living in the residence hall. Students who pass all their classes may earn up to a 1.0 elective credit at their high school to count towards graduation. All this for FREE and you will get a weekly stipend when you leave on Fridays (or we can hold onto it for you for the summer trip).  



Graduating seniors may apply to participate in our Summer Bridge program.  Students are enrolled in a 3.o college credit course, have a seminar class, in addition to working at least 3 hours p/week (prep and serve breakfast, office hours, hall supervision, etc.).  Bridge students are considered summer staff and are expected to attend training with the rest of residential summer staff.  Summer tuition and room & board are paid for by UB.  Students also earn a weekly stipend.  We highly suggest seniors to participate as spots are limited so please apply asap. 

Summer Bridge Application will go up later next spring!

To get your Stipend you must: 

  • Complete any pending survey(s) 
  • RSVP to upcoming events
  • Complete Cyberbound 
  • Submit a copy of your ACT scores from juniors & anyone who missed the UB ACT needs to make it up.
