WHAT OUR FANTASTIC STUDENTS SAY

  • “AMAZING experience, I was quite sad to leave campus after Summer Design Academy ended. I found the program very engaging with knowledgeable professors and TAs that were as excited as the participants. Thoroughly enjoyable experience. And the food was spectacular!”
    2015 Summer Design Academy participant
  • “To be able to make the connection between in class learning and field work so easily is astounding. [Professor] Sarah [Berquist] did it with ease and made the program as educational as possible within the few days that we had! Because of this program, I have decided that I will go on to pursue sustainable agriculture as a major.”

  • "Jump! showed me that you can find a community that you can learn with and grow from, and this helped me find the balance between doing work and having fun. The program helped me get used to creating that balance without too much pressure, and it felt very natural by the time I got to school in the fall"
