Why SoCo?

SoCo is more than a class—it's an experience. The immersive, three-week residential classes often include field trips and hands-on learning outside the classroom, creating a connection with your SoCo faculty and life-long friendships. Enjoy small class sizes and the chance to focus deeply on a field that interests you.

what students say...

"one of the best decisions I could've made"

When I look back at my sophomore year, choosing to do SoCo was one of the best decisions I could've made; I found lifelong friends within my cohort, gained mentors I continue to learn from, and created memories to cherish for a very long time. If given the chance, I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.
