Berklee Summer Initiative 2018

The 2018 Berklee Summer Initiative (BSI18) is a pre-orientation program for newly enrolling students, taking place between August 26 and 31, 2018. The BSI18 program has been designed in content and focus to reflect Berklee's roots in African American musical traditions with the goals of fostering a strong sense of African American community, support, belonging, and cultural history on campus.

BSI18 is open to all newly enrolling students and will help you get to know Berklee faculty and staff prior to the start of the semester as well as develop relationships with fellow students with whom you will spend the next four years.
