Live-Learn-Explore for the 2011 Summer School and Summer Activities Program at SC State

Monday, April 18, 2011

Live-Learn-Explore is the theme for the 2011 Summer School and Summer Activities Program at SC State. The summer course offerings and activities schedule is packed with courses, fun activities and programs that will enable you to live, learn and explore. 


The summer school program at the University includes multiple sessions and a variety of courses for traditional and non-traditional students.  Summer school is designed to provide students the opportunity to complete their course of study for early graduation, to improve their grade point average, to reduce their course load during the regular semester, or to get their course of study back on track.  Students may earn up to 18 semester credit hours. 


In addition to serving currently enrolled students at SC State University, Dr. Barbara Adams, director of Summer School, indicates that SC State also welcomes non-traditional and visiting students from other universities during the summer.  Students can earn academic credit that will transfer to the degree college.   Entering freshmen may also wish to get a head start on college courses by attending summer school.   A number of courses are also available to persons wishing to renew teaching certificates or to those interested in self-improvement.


In keeping with the University’s outreach mission, the Summer Activities Program is designed to provide opportunities for various groups in the community to experience living in a college environment and to enhance learning in areas such as math, science, reading, astronomy, financial literacy, entrepreneurship, Spanish and much, much more.  In addition, participants may explore career opportunities in areas such as environmental science, nuclear science and agribusiness.  Regardless of your interest or age group, Adams assures there is something for everyone ranging from youths to adults. 


Session I for the 2011 Summer School and Summer Activities Program begins Monday, May 16, 2011. Session II commences on Wednesday, June 22, 2011. For more information on summer school and summer activities, contact Dr. Barbara L. Adams at (803) 536-8449.
