CIE Quest Kick-Off
This summer, the college will be piloting an optional 3-day intensive summer CIE program known as “Quest Kick-Off.” Students who participate in this program will arrive on campus on Sunday, August 21, and then will participate in three full days of CIE classes and activities with their CIE professor and classmates from August 22-24. Participants in Quest Kick-Off will conclude CIE by Thanksgiving break given the early start. This program is modeled after the 2.5-week summer intensive program we ran in the summer of 2020 and which was overall enthusiastically received by students and faculty alike for the strong community bonds and intellectual excitement it fostered. All incoming first-year students are eligible to apply to participate in this summer program, known as the “Quest Kick-Off,” and we hope to be able to accommodate as many students who are interested as possible.
