The summer institute welcomes approximately 50 students who spend a week living the life of a college student. In the mornings, they hear from engaging speakers and professors who address what the Catholic theological tradition has to say about the topic for that day (science, art, business, politics, or sports).

In the afternoons, students visit exciting sights in Washington, D.C. where they meet people who have achieved excellence in their field and who can speak about the impact of their faith on their work.

In the evenings, students participate in prayerful reflections and hear witnesses from the undergraduate counselors about the variety of ways God has worked in their lives.
