students walk across campus

Think SummER! This early start program is held during the 2019 Summer B semester which begins with orientation on June 30th and runs through August 12th when final exams are complete.

Why participate in Think SummER? There are a variety of advantages! Some benefits are specific to Aeronautical Science majors. Benefits for all students include:

  • Get an early start to college coursework and an introduction to campus before the rush of the fall semester
  • Any students that needs to take COM 20 Fundamentals of Communication, EGR 195A Spatial Visualization, MA 4 Basic and Intermediate Algebra, MA 6 Intermediate Algebra, or MA 143 Precalculus Essentials can take one of these courses for free as long as the student takes at least six credits during the summer B session.
  • Discount on tuition other than the courses listed above
  • Form a bond with peers, instructors, academic advisors, and peer mentors (upperclassmen students)
  • Take optional trips to fun locations in the Daytona Beach area

Why participate in Early Flight during Think SummER?

  • Opportunity to fly every day (weather permitting) during the summer B session all the way up to the start of fall classes
  • This daily, narrowly focused approach on flight could lead to savings and enhanced learning
  • Make significant progress toward earning your Private Pilot License during the summer which allows you to focus on academic coursework during the fall
  • Form a bond with peers and flight instructors
  • Take optional trips to fun locations in the Daytona Beach area as time allows when not flying

Think SummER gave me a competitive edge for the already competitive environment that is ERAU. Thanks to Think SummER, I have not only been able to excel in flight, but academically as well as socially, with faculty and other students.
