OCTET 2017 Instructions

See the Map and Instructions for details about where to go and what to bring to the first day of camp!



We are so excited to have received more applications this year than ever before! We are in the process of reviewing all of your applications and we will contact you with a decision in the next 1-2 weeks.

OCTET 2017

OCTET 2017 will take place the week of July 10 this year! Look for applications at the end of January. This year we will have a research component in which participants will complete a research project during the week!

Permission Forms

Hello 2016 OCTET Participants and Parents!

Please fill out the consent form attached here (Waiver and Release Form) and return it ASAP, but no later than May 31.

Some logistics:

  • You do not need to bring anything. Even lunch will be provided!
  • If you are planning to park on campus, be sure to indicate that on your consent form so we can get you a parking pass!
  • We will let you know where to meet on the first day when we get closer to July 11

Looking forward to a great summer! Good luck if you are still taking finals!!!
