The first week of the program is our humanities academic boot camp, which includes daily seminars taught by campus professors who are leaders in their field, readings and analysis of challenging texts on the tradition of American democracy, and morning discussions on each reading in preparation for seminars, writing workshops, and assignments.

The second week of this academic boot camp is the business and entrepreneurship program, which prepares students for the demands and challenges of a business-related undergraduate degree program with a focus on entrepreneurship. The program achieves this through daily seminars on the fundamentals of business degree programs, interactions with business leaders, and experiential learning opportunities such as a group entrepreneurship competition, negotiations, group problem-solving, business presentations, and utilizing business software.
