    Institute for Academic Success

The program provides an immersive pre-college residential experience for a group of up to 25 incoming Hamline undergraduate first year students. The institute will connect participants with campus resources, provide knowledge on how to integrate work study experiences with one's social and academic life and opportunities to explore both the local Hamline and larger Twin Cities community.
