Summer Start helps high school seniors transform into confident college students.

Summer Start helps first-year students acclimate to college before starting classes in the fall. Students receive a well-rounded introduction to academic and social life at WKU by living on campus, taking college courses, engaging with professors, meeting other first-year students, and learning effective ways to utilize student resources.

"I did Summer Start so I could start college early and adjust to the new environment. I now have 6 extra credit hours
and a group of friends I will cherish forever." - Julia Johnson, 2017 Summer Start Student
