The purpose of the Summer ARCH Program is to help you develop a thoughtful educational plan in conjunction with a faculty adviser. Think of ARCH as your first official activity as a Wooster student. You will complete important tasks that are part of getting ready for the first year of college including registering for classes.
While you are on campus you will:
- Meet with faculty, staff, and upperclass students who will help you understand the liberal arts mission, the academic policies and expectations, and how to take full advantage of the opportunities at Wooster.
- Learn about the goals of a Wooster Education and how our liberal arts requirements, majors, minors, and off-campus study program help to facilitate the development of these goals.
- Have the opportunity to meet with students engaged in summer research projects and learn about the various ways the College supports your development as a scholar and helps prepare you for Wooster's Senior Independent Study.
- Take the foreign language placement exams to help determine which course will be most appropriate for you.
- Work one-on-one with a faculty adviser to select and register for your Fall Semester courses.
