Returning Scholars interns help run Summer Connections in partnership with Lawrence Tech faculty and staff.

Students divide their days among academic, co-curricular, and fun team-building activities. All Summer Connections students stay in our Housing for the week-long program, even if they plan on being commuter students.

Thanks to the sponsorship of the King-Parks-Chavez Program, Summer Connections is offered at no additional cost to students. Students may apply at Orientation & Registration, or by contacting the Program Director, below.
