The Summer Language Institutes Experience

"SLI is not your average summer!"

"This summer I studied abroad with the friends that I started learning language with in SLI last year. I likely would not have been able to study abroad if I had not started studying a language with SLI."

Where do students live during SLI?

SLI is a residential program, students are required to live on campus for the duration of the program.

SLI students are housed in the North Georgia Suites; for more information about this residence hall, please visit the Residence Life webpage.

SLI language cohorts are placed on halls together along with resident tutors who are upper classmen that have studied the language to an intermediate or advanced level. This helps to create a positive study environment and increases opportunity for students to apply their target language.

Student Commitment

  • Cannot be registered for any other courses.
  • May not be employed.
  • Must not have any other major time commitments outside of SLI for the extent of the program.
