2018 College Scholars Summer Collegiate Experience

SEEDS College Scholars continued their SEEDS experience this summer with a three-week residential session at Hobart and William Smith Colleges from June 24 until July 13. Academically, students focused on literary analysis (dissecting the play “Arcadia,” and studying theater and philosophy) and read “The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao” to inspire discussion on the transition to college. Students also continued preparing for college, which included drafting personal statements for upcoming applications, and learning more about the college process (the common application, scholarship research and fly-in opportunities). Students also heard more about Hobart and William Smith Colleges from the admissions team on campus, and took a college tour to visit Cornell University and Syracuse University. In addition to their time studying and in class, College Scholars spent time playing sports, participating in an escape room, a bake off, a talent showcase and the annual SEEDS Olympics. Thanks, College Scholars, for an awesome summer!
