Last night students said goodbye to one another at our farewell meeting. Fortunately, there were Insomnia cookies for us to cope with the sadness of departure. We were truly glad to have such a great crew of students this session and we wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors!
Students were very lucky to be on campus to witness filming for Steven Spielberg’s new film about the Pentagon Papers titled, The Post. Using Low Library as the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court Building, the campus was abuzz with excitement as the cameras rolled!
The crew had an incredible time today touring Yale and learning all about the over 300 year old institution. From the rare books collection to the residential dorms to the library, the students really got an incredible opportunity to experience the Ivy League school. Following the tour, many students checked out the bookstore, and will be representing Yale abroad!
After hard work put into their second SAT diagnostic test, students had the chance to relax for a moment and get a chance to enjoy some city views. While we are in the final week, many big things are still ahead– namely our trip to Yale today where students will have the opportunity to tour the beautiful Ivy League school.
While students had another opportunity to explore New York today, several got time in studying for their second SAT test. The life of a Summerfuel student certainly abides by the ‘Work Hard, Play Hard’ philosophy! They have been working very hard on raising their scores from the first test and they will definitely be proud when they see their efforts pay off.
No matter where you’re standing on campus, its pretty easy to be in a state of awe at Columbia. En route to dinner this evening, students were able to catch this sight to cap another gorgeous day in Morningside Heights. As they have worked hard all week, tomorrow we will be off into the city all day for a nice change of pace!
Our lucky Summerfuel students had the opportunity of touring both Manhattan and Sarah Lawrence College. In the midst of quaint and cozy suburban, Bronx, are two private and accomplished colleges. Manhattan College’s ranking in the 2017 edition of Best Colleges is Regional Universities North number 15 and is known for its Division 1 sports. Sarah Lawrence College’s ranking in the 2017 edition of Best Colleges is National Liberal Arts Colleges is 59 and our Summerfuel-ers got to learn about Sarah Lawrence’s low student-to-faculty ratio and highly individualized course of study. Two beautiful campuses in one sunny New York day!
