For incoming freshman Gavin Whitman, participating in the Get Caught Up in a Flash Bootcamp was one of the smartest ways to start his journey at Kent State.

After successfully completing the week-long program, Whitman received a 32-inch Samsung Smart Hub/HDTV. He is a student on the East Liverpool Campus.

The bootcamp provides students with an immersive and intensive learning experience to focus on identified weaknesses in English and/or algebra before beginning their first semester. Students attend a weeklong, on-campus experience where they meet with professors, improve their knowledge and then reassess their skills at the end of the week through testing. 

Participating students can save time and money by testing out of the remedial courses.

Students are identified during campus STAR events and notified of the bootcamp and its benefits during their academic advising appointments.
