Teaching Assistant Groups  

Teaching Assistant Groups (TA Groups) meet during the summer, Sunday through Wednesday from 7 p.m to 9 p.m. The groups are comprised of 10-12 students, both new and returning, and are lead by resident teaching assistant staff.

TAs play a critical role in the summer program, providing academic support in the classroom, as well as close one-on-one assistance during TA Group time. Because students have so much contact with TAs, they often become extremely important to students- leading activities, helping them adjust to being away from home, resolving roommate issues, and working on study skills and other academic issues.
