  • What Are You Doing This Summer?: Believe it or not, it’s time for Fellows to start planning their summers. It is important that Fellows get involved with something meaningful over the summer instead of just sitting around. Parents, we’re talking to you, too! It’s time now to start thinking about what you’re going to do. Check out the BRYCDOWN for some options. If you have a particular interest, reach out to your Program Director and they can help you find opportunities connected to it!

College Preview Days / Underclassman College Tour

Preview Days are about the best way to explore a college. These events usually last between 4-6 hours and allow for potential students to learn about the campus, take part in financial aid sessions, and meet professors from departments that students may wish to pursue their majors. Preview Days are open to all Fellows. Transportation will be worked out after determining how much interest there is. If more Fellows are interested in attending than we have seats for, we will use RUBRYC scores to determine who can attend. ALL Fellows are expected to attend Preview Days for Louisiana colleges prior to their Junior year.
