EXCEL is a three-day summer program geared toward first-year students of color and first-generation college students. EXCEL features workshops to expose students to common aspects of daily college life. Participants learn techniques that will help them focus on their academic and social development.
The program is an opportunity to make new friends and get firsthand experience of college life before classes start. Participants will be paired with a mentor who is a returning student with proven academic and social skills. Mentors will help guide mentees through the social and academic aspects of Ball State. The EXCEL program ends in times to allow students to participate in an additional summer bridge program that will further enhance this pre-college experience. Direct questions to Seth Kaempfer in the Multicultural Center, 765-285-1344.
