Peaks and Potentials allows high-potential students to come to the MSU campus and explore special topics of interest while working with experts in various subject areas.

Instructors are MSU faculty members, students and experienced professionals from the area. University students and professionals act as directors and counselors throughout the week.

All workshops emphasize personal instruction, small group interaction and a "hands-on" experiential approach. Academic, recreational and social activities offer students a chance to interact with their peers and sample campus life.
