AHS Summer Exploration and Transition

Starting college can be daunting. Let us help with AHS:SET!

Applied Health Sciences: Summer Exploration and Transition (AHS:SET) meets once a week for five-weeks of summer to engage and prepare our AHS incoming freshmen.

In a fun and interactive format, you’ll get exposed to introductory academic course work, research, careers, and tools for navigating the rigors of an applied health sciences degree.

Sharpen your skills, make connections and learn the campus – all before your first fall semester.
