Summer at UC Irvine is rather calm compared to the hustle and bustle of the school year; the halls are quieter, the plazas nearly empty. A quick walk by room 1208 in Social Sciences Plaza B, however, yields a much different scene. Here, 22 students are enrolled in the School of Social Sciences’ Summer Academic Enrichment Program.
