Getting Ready for Launch
How early is too early to start planning for a summer program? At SYP, we take the approach that it's never too soon! Would you believe we're trying to have all of our preliminary information together by October 12th?

We are already well underway planning for summer of 2019. What do we have to start planning so early? With each exploration evaluated individually, we take extra care to make adjustments as needed. We meet with all of the departments, faculty, and staff who host the explorations. We talk with them about what went well this year, their plans for the summer, and any changes they want to make to the activities. This is also the time when we set the course capacities, schedule what weeks to run each class, and review the descriptions of each exploration.

Soon, we will send all of the course updates to our colleagues around campus: the Registrar's office, who set up the classes so you can enroll them; University Marketing and Communications, who design and coordinate printing of the catalogs; and all of the departments to confirm dates. It takes an army to launch SYP every year, and all of it takes place behind the scenes.

Once everything is produced, checked, and double-checked, it's off to the printer with the catalogs and posted to the web with our online application! We aim to launch in early December each year, which comes up quickly.

If you're like us and are already excited for next summer, you can go ahead and request a catalog: CLICK HERE and click the Request a Catalog button. That way, you will be among the first to receive the 2019 listings when they print. If you have any questions, you can always find us at syp@mtu.edu or by phone at 906-487-2219 (8 am-5 pm M-F).
