It may happen during the summer, and it may bring high school students to campus, but Bonnie Carew doesnâ€™t want anyone to refer to the Rural Medical Scholars program she directs at Mississippi State University as a summer camp.
â€ś(These high school students) take seven college credits in a five-week term,â€ť Carew said. â€śIt can be a really heavy load. They are actually admitted to MSU under the special program for academically talented students. I donâ€™t have a camp. I have college students.â€ť
