Congratulations to the incoming Wiley College freshmen who have attended and completed the school's  STEMulate! Math and Science camp, a free two-week residential program  that is designed to increase and enhance math comprehension and aptitude of students who want to study and pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and/or math.  Wiley's program also exposes students to  scientific writing and aims to increase critical thinking and study skills.

Wiley's math and science camp is a component of the College's three-year $500,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to help foster, develop, and retain students' interests in studying and earning degrees in STEM fields.
