Suffolk University offers Ram Academy as an extended transition program for new first-year students after they have completed orientation. Each Ram Academy is tailored to a different segement of the student experience...leadership, multiculturalism & social justice, service & community engagement, and Boston arts and culture.

Ram Academy is a unique way to learn more, go further, & really connect with the Suffolk experience...while having the most fun possible with other new Rams.

Ram Academy participants will:

  • Be provided with an opportunity to make friends with other incoming first-year students who share similar interests
  • Have a unique co-curricular engagement experience that supports a successful college transition and thereby create a sense of belonging in their new community
  • Be exposed to greater understanding and appreciation for a pluralistic society
  • Build connections with upper-class students and members of Suffolk's faculty/staff
  • Be introduced to shared expectations for community membership at Suffolk University
  • Build confidence in understanding and accessing the personal and academic support resources available at Suffolk
  • Get a jump start on getting engaged in campus life and find out what it really means to be a Suffolk student

Ram Academy participants will work with experienced  student leaders, staff, and other first-year students in an experiential education model. Use the below tabs to learn more about the various Ram Academy programs being offered this year and register today (space is limited).
