Program for the Exceptionally Gifted (PEG)

Director: Carla Van Devander, Assistant Professor of Education

 Associate Director: Christy Baker 

This community is for students who have been accepted to the Program for the Exceptionally Gifted (PEG). PEG is a radical acceleration program that allows students as young as 13 to skip high school and dive right into college, living within a community of their intellectual and social peers. Students in this community are invited to participate in other age-appropriate co-curricular and extra-curricular activities that are social, cultural, or for enjoyment and personal growth. PEG students live in Tyson Hall for up to 2 years, which is a living-learning community with adult advisors in the building 24 hours a day. 

During the first semester, PEG students will take their own section of ENG 102. This course gives students an English credit they need in order to graduate. 

Note: Additional application and interview are required.
