FIRST YEAR ADIRONDACK ADVENTURE
The First Year Adirondack Adventure is an awesome excursion available to incoming freshman. Participants travel to Lake Placid and stay at a youth hostel for five days. The trip is a great transition into college. Many times, students are anxious about leaving home and starting school. The Adirondack Adventure eases this transition through team-building activities and close interaction with faculty and peers. Interested students should act quickly, as spots are limited.
EDGAR FELLOWS PROGRAM
The Edgar Fellows Program is the honors sector of Geneseo. Students in the program are selected for their strong record of academic excellence and personal motivation. Edgar fellows belong to a small community of academically inclined individuals that seek a challenge in their educational experiences. Participants benefit from academic and personal support, along with research opportunities and co-curricular activities.
THE EDGAR FELLOWS CAPSTONE EXPERIENCE
The Edgar Fellows Programs culminates with a capstone experience that allows students to further explore their passions. Students are required to design their own research, perform a written, critical analysis, and give an oral presentation. Projects can range from a senior thesis to community service. In any case, the student must demonstrate that their work has intellectual integrity and purpose. All projects are supervised by a mentor. The relationship between a mentor and student will change based on the nature of the project, but ultimately, the mentor decides the grade for the project.
WASHINGTON INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
The Washington Internship Program is a study away option that offers countless benefits and leadership opportunities. Participants of the program experience a near full-time internship, an academic course, and a Leadership Forum. Students build professional networks through interaction with industry leaders. The program is selective, so interested students must be in good academic standing. It is also beneficial for students to have an interest in the sciences or humanities and science.
