TOPS Summer Gear Up

The Edgewood College TOPS Summer Gear Up is a residential summer program that supports the transition of our Boys and Girls Club – Dane County students! As a portion of the official partnership between BGCDC and Edgewood, the TOPS Summer Gear Up is your first stop to college!

Edgewood College TOPS Scholars move into the residence hall for four days of community building, learning and fun! This serves as an exciting opportunity to get to know each other and get comfortable on campus. Our goal is to assist you in developing a clear understanding of personal learning strengths and needs, discovering how resources and self-advocacy can support success and connecting with other students.

TOPS Summer Gear Up is designed to ease the transition to college and support your success by providing academic skills, campus resources and access to social experiences.
