Purple Summer 2021

Use Your Summer Brilliantly

Whether you take classes on campus or online this summer, there’s no better time to enhance your academic experience. Talk with your academic advisor and get started.


A Purple Summer Is Time Well Spent. Here’s Why.


Get Ahead 

Stay on track to graduate on schedule — or even early. Taking core classes now means more time for internships, work and activities later.

Forge Your Path

Choose from a wide array of in-person or online courses. It's a great way to work toward a minor, emphasis or even a second major.

Make It Personal 

Summer is an excellent time to connect with faculty and take popular classes that fill up quickly in spring and fall.

Find Support 

You may be eligible to fund your summer experience through grants. Complete a 2021-22 FAFSA and apply.
