We love January (and we think you will, too). Our exploratory term in January, Jan Plan, gives students opportunities to choose among hundreds of different academic experiences. It’s a time for focused study, for interning, or for conducting research. Students are required to complete three Jan Plans, but 90 percent of students elect to do four. It’s just that good.
