Courses will be offered in a mixture of 6-week and 12-week modes, with class times throughout the day. Wednesdays are nominally reserved for co- and extra-curricular activities as well as for studying. There will be no courses offered on Saturday or Sunday, although co-curricular/fun activities (e.g., an optional hike with a faculty member) may be planned on a weekend.
Rensselaer will be offering an exciting set of activities in The Arch, including special seminars, workshops, field trips, and exploration tours, etc. Indeed, summer offers many ways to engage across the greater Hudson Mohawk Region and beyond, through unique multicultural events, and experiences. The Rensselaer Union will also expand the capacity of existing summer programs and services. This includes, but is not limited to, intramurals, fitness classes, movies, food festivals, and promotion of area summer festivals and destinations. The student jazz ensemble established during summer 2015 will continue. In addition, the Mueller Center is developing a robust summer outdoor recreation program such as hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, and camping. The East Campus Athletic Village will also be open in the summer.
