Keene State College Links Program
About Keene State College Links Program
The Links Program is a five-week summer program designed for first-time college students. The purpose of Links is to expose students to the academic and social expectations of college in a supportive learning community. The program takes place in classrooms, a residence hall, around campus and in the local Keene community.
Co-curricular and classroom components are integrated thematically in an attempt to make learning relevant and meaningful. Links components are designed to enhance critical skills such as college reading, writing, critical thinking and communication. At the close of five-weeks, students are better able to handle the varied demands of college and be active, contributing members of the Keene State College community.
