Our summer 2017 schedule is now available and registration is open!
1-Week Public Forum Workout
The 1-Week Public Forum Workout is designed for students who don't have the time to complete the full 2-Week Core Public Forum Program. We recommend that students who are able choose to attend the 2-Week Core Public Forum Program or the 3-Week Public Forum Experience. Based on past requests, we recognize that some students are unable to fit the full program into their summer and offer this shortened program to allow more students to sharpen their Public Forum skills over the summer.
The primary purpose of the 1-Week Public Forum Workout is to accommodate students who are unable to attend the 2-Week Core Public Forum Program due to unavoidable scheduling constraints. SNFI strongly suggests attending the 2-Week Core Public Forum Program instead of the 1-Week Public Forum Workout. Note that the academic experience is not tailored to students attending the 1-Week Public Forum Workout, so students may arrive/depart in the middle of important materials without being at a logical start/stop point, and our staff is unable to make special accommodations for students who are departing early from or arrivaing late to the 2-Week Core Public Forum Program via enrollment in the 1-Week Public Forum Workout.
