Hop-In is an intensive five-week summer bridge program that provides early exposure to academic and social life at Johns Hopkins to a group of academically talented incoming first-year students. Many of the program’s participants are the first in their family to go to college; from high schools that offered relatively limited opportunities for advanced course work; or have significant time constraints with their coursework during the first year on campus. Before their first year, Hop-In participants can earn up to five credit hours, develop social networks, connect with campus resources, and explore the city of Baltimore.
