in the Liberal Arts

Summer Immersion prepares students to enter, navigate, and influence the educational experience at Vassar.

Summer Immersion 2021 will take place virtually: July 7th – July 23rd.

Summer Immersion in the Liberal Arts is an experience for incoming Vassar first-years, designed with historically underrepresented groups in mind. During the summer prior to their first semester, Summer Immersion students forge connections, build community, and envision the Vassar–and the world–they want to create.

The Summer Immersion program offers an exciting opportunity to begin meeting members of the Vassar community before arriving on campus for the fall semester. Incoming students can explore Vassar’s global liberal arts curriculum and become familiar with the range of resources that are available to them while on campus.

As a cohort, Summer Immersion participants connect with our dedicated team of mentors: professors, staff, current students, and graduates who work together to welcome, challenge, and support Vassar’s newest students as they prepare to embark on their college journey.
