Why wait? You're ready for a challenge and are looking for opportunities to explore and expand your acadmeic achievement, your leadership skills or your community involvement. We have a program of distinction that will do just that - and more.
Some Programs of Distinction begin after that first year. They allow you to develop qualities and to enhance a skillset that employers are looking for. Maybe research is your passion. Perhaps you are a natural born leader. Or are you that person who is interested in bettering the world around you? Look no further. Check out the opportunities that are available to you beyond your freshman year.
There are opportunities in Programs of Distinction all along your undergrad journey at SVSU. UGRP and The Wolohan Fellowship are just two examples.
