Career Exploration Summer Camps at Chicago State University

We are excited to offer high school students the opportunity to engage in career exploration on our campus this summer with a choice of three in person pre-collegiate summer camps. Seats are limited so apply early! The camps will expose students to careers in engineering, education, and the health professions (for example, nursing, occupational therapy, and pharmacy). No previous experience is necessary to join the camps:  just a curiosity to learn, explore new professions, and have fun!
