March 19, 2013  |  by Michael Freedman

Niagara University is presenting high school students and incoming NU freshmen with an opportunity to begin working on their college degrees early.

The NU Summer Academy is a program designed for students entering the 11th and 12th grades in fall 2013, as well as incoming NU freshmen, who want to get a head start on their college careers.

Participants will attend classes in a college setting, learn from some of the best instructors on campus, as well as guest lecturers, and, perhaps most importantly, earn valuable credit hours by completing just two weeks of summer classes.

Running July 22 – Aug. 2, successful completion of one of the seven classes is worth three college credit hours.
