Summer break is nearly here – and as you know, it is a great time for students to explore what piques their interest! If you have students with an interest in art, science, and technology, we are excited to invite them to register for one of our Architecture Career Discovery Program sessions.

This two-week class, taught entirely online, is designed to expose students to the experience of enrolling in a high-quality undergraduate architecture program. High school students entering 10th, 11th, and 12th grade in the fall, who are interested in future careers in architecture or design-related fields and have a curiosity about the world, are encouraged to apply.

Session 1: Monday, July 12 – Friday, July 23 (9 a.m. –  4 p.m. EDT)

Session 2: Monday, July 26 – Friday, August 6 (11 a.m. –  6 p.m. EDT)

Course outline: The core of this course is studio work. In studio, students are immersed in a rigorous creative process that starts with an idea, the development of abstract models, and ultimately leads to the design of an exciting and innovative architectural building proposal. Critique and evaluation of studio work is continuous, occurring in one-on-one discussions with the instructor and in larger group reviews with invited architectural critics. Studio work is complemented by a series of lectures and presentations, which explore the broader context of architectural practice, contemporary projects and practitioners, as well as more technical concerns such as drawing and model making.

University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy PIER Program:

 

What: PIER stands for Pharmacy Innovation Experience and Research. We aim to expose our students to the wide range of opportunities that come with a PharmD (Doctorate in Pharmacy) Degree. In doing so, we bring in expert faculty members from PittPharmacy to talk about their journeys throughout the field. We also emphasize the role of a pharmacist in research and the innovative fields that one can pursue through the many doors opened with a PharmD. We have weekly webinars followed by activities that will engage the students and encourage teamwork. There will be patient cases that the students will work through outside of the webinar sessions and they will receive help and guidance from their mentors, who are all current PittPharmacy students. Throughout our program we also foster professional development by implementing resume workshops and tips on how to have a successful interview.

 

When: The program is 5 weeks long, with a webinar occurring every Friday from 12:00pm–2:00pm (Eastern Time). The first session is July 9th, and our last being August 6th of Summer 2021.

 

Where: Due to the global pandemic, this summer's PIER program will be virtual. Our online setting will allow for many students across the country to tune in and experience the PIER program!

 

Why: When people think of a pharmacist, they tend to imagine someone filling medications in CVS or Rite Aid. While those are very important roles that are filled by pharmacists, there is so much more that one can do with a PharmD degree. The goal of our program is to expand students views and allow them to start thinking NOW about the many different fields one can pursue in pharmacy.

 

Deadline:  The deadline date to apply to the PIER Program is June 18, 2021 and there is no cost to participate in PIER!

This flexible online program is designed for high school students, ages 13 and older. It enables them to investigate subject areas of particular interest.

Why Georgetown? Georgetown University’s approach to education is unique. We follow the Jesuit tradition of cura personalis—care for the whole person—and our goal with this new program is to provide a holistic experience. Students deserve the opportunity to develop their own talents and dreams, and this program will help them do that.

The course teaches valuable critical thinking skills. Topics covered offer a good background for potential college majors and career paths related to law.

Medical Research: Clinical Trials Resulting in Medical Discoveries

High school students learn the processes researchers use to formulate and conduct studies, as well as evaluate the evidence gathered. Topics covered offer a good background for potential college majors and career paths related to STEM, medical research, pharmacology, and biostatistics.

The College Process: Building a Balanced List of Schools

Thursday, May 6

Registration Link (for students)

With more than 5,000 colleges and universities across the United States sending millions of emails and brochures each year, the number of options can feel daunting. This workshop will help you filter through the noise and create a balanced and manageable college application list.

It’s Time We Talk: Tips for a Successful College Interview

Thursday, May 13

Registration Link (for students)

You've surfed the web, joined the mailing list and maybe even toured the campus. It's time to move on to the next phase of your college search. The college interview is an opportunity to share your story, unveil the myth behind the mystery of an applicant file and dig deeper in learning about the colleges on your list. But what if you feel anxious? What if you forget what you were going to say? What if you just don't have the answer to the question? This workshop will review interview prep, sample questions and how to handle sticky situations so you will leave the interview having improved your chance of admission.

Breaking Barriers: A Toolkit for First-Generation Students

Thursday, May 20

Registration Link (for students)

Going to college is a monumental accomplishment for any incoming freshman, but for some students, this isn’t just a personal achievement - it’s a milestone for everyone in their family. First-generation college students can be a source of pride for a family, but being the first to pursue a college degree can also present unique challenges - namely, that they cannot benefit from their parents’ college experience. This workshop will explore what it means to be a first-generation student, discuss obstacles you may face, and offer tips and strategies on how to face them head-on.
