Summer Launch Academic Readiness Program

Summer Launch welcomes incoming freshmen into HBU before the fall semester begins to prepare them academically for the rigors of college and connect them to students, faculty, and staff.

At Summer Launch, you will:

  • Experience life as an on-campus resident, spending four nights in the HBU residence halls and eating meals in the Baugh Center
  • Make friends with other incoming freshmen
  • Learn time management and academic strategies
  • Participate in on-campus challenges and games
  • Be assigned an upperclassmen mentor
  • Enjoy the vibrant city of Houston on downtown excursions

This year, Summer Launch will be held June 29 – July 3, 2020 on the Houston Baptist University campus.
