Beyond the classroom

  • Performing an off-Broadway production in New York City
  • Studying and attending the presidential inauguration in Washington, D.C.
  • Interning with the ESPN X Games in Aspen, Colorado
  • Learning how to start a business on a shoestring budget
  • Studying the connections between humans and the Atlantic Ocean
  • Discovering what it’s really like to be a teacher in the school system

“J-term is hands-on. My course, How to do Florida, is designed to get students out to see our natural resources."

The Citizenship Project

All first-year students take a course during J-Term that focuses on a civic issue or problem.

Students participate in projects to enhance the community and make an impact. Citizenship Project topics include homelessness, environmental sustainability and urban renewal.
