Student Success and Advising

KEY Summer Institute

The KEY Summer Institute is a one-week experience on campus held in late July-early August to assist new students in acclimating to college, and help them develop a set of professional skills that can be applied to gaining on-campus employment.

Led by caring, student-centered resident faculty, each KEY Institute class engages in activities that help them get to know important offices on campus, navigate our buildings and grounds, prepare for college-level academic success, and connect with one another. Our Career Services center also offers a Professionalism for Student Employment certification workshop during the Institute. Students earning certificates can then submit copies of that certification to potential employers on campus along with their required application.

Students who participate in this intense but enjoyable experience make friends and form relationships with faculty that strongly promote their success on campus.

Students who are interested in participating in the KEY Summer Institute should visit to find the KEY Summer Institute registration link.
