The Pathways to Excellence Summer Intensive is a unique residential workshop that prepares incoming first-year CMCI students for academic success in media and communication.

Participating students produce their own advertising campaigns and multimedia projects, receive math and writing instruction and tour newsrooms and ad agencies. They also learn more about the curriculum in the CMCI by working with faculty in each of the seven CMCI departments.

Before classes even begin, students meet new friends and launch their academic career with a strong sense of community.
