During the summer program,
students receive assistance in
improving their study habits, enroll
in college-level courses, and also
receive an overall orientation to

                       several other opportunities available
                       that you may want to learn about. To
                       mention a few, there are the Fulbright,
                       Beinecke Memorial, Marshall, and
                       Barry M. Goldwater Scholarships.
                       Since all of these are highly
                       competitive, you cannot begin thinking
                       about them too soon. Prof. Abramowitz
                       is the adviser for these fellowships
                       and is ready to assist you.

    Vandalism: When incidents of
    vandalism occur and no individual
    takes responsibility, or the act
    goes unreported to an RA/RD,
    it unfortunately becomes the
    responsibility of floor residents to
    pay collectively for the damages
    and their accounts will be billed.
    In the case of graduating seniors,
    funds to repair the damage are
    deducted from the $700 in deposits
