The June 2012 camp consisted of approximately 85 students selected from over 450 applications.

A Guidance Counselor recommendation is the base requirement. Although high GPA/SAT scores along with a pattern of achievement and involvement are important, particular emphasis is placed on the overall presence and enthusiasm that the candidate exhibits in the personal interview with the Dean.

It is held Monday through Thursday 9 AM to 6 PM the last week in June each year.
Should the student bring food each day?
No. A light breakfast in addition to lunch and dinner will be provided each day at no charge.
Can the student's parents take part in any of the activities?
Yes. In fact, we encourage it. During the first morning there is a one hour introduction to the camp at which the President of the College and all the Business Deans address both the students and any parents who are interested in attending. In addition, on the final (Thursday) evening there is a dinner and brief graduation/awards ceremony that parents are highly encouraged to attend.
When and where will the applicants be interviewed?
The Dean Bier and Professor Pullaro will visit all the participating high schools and interview each of the applicants recommended by their Guidance Counselor during the months of February,March and early April. Those who may be unavailable on that date may schedule an on-campus interview at a more convenient time.
When will the students be informed as to whether or not they have been accepted?
The applicants will normally be informed as to their status by their Guidance Counselor by the end of April.
