Summer Activities

Summer Activities

During the summer, the Summer School Office, Student Activities, and the Department of Athletics plan several recreational events for summer students. These activities are open to all students who are on-campus for the summer. While most of our summer activities have no limit to the number of students who can participate, some events, particularly those requiring tickets or transportation off campus require sign-up. Sign ups for off campus events will be sent out via email the week prior to the event date to all students on-campus (Summer School, JBS, GSAS, student employees, Heller, etc.). Summer activities schedule is subject to change.
