I'm an English undergrad at Princeton, but have recently become very interested in architecture. I'm thinking of taking a summer introductory architecture course at a university. Do you know much about them? What are your thoughts/advice/
Congrats on your interest in architecture. I do support the idea of attending a summer program but many are more targeted at high school students. Each year, I compile a list (see previous post).
Some are more targeted to college level students - Harvad, Columbia, UCLA, Washington Univ. and LAIAD (not summer).
Los Angeles Institute of Architecture and Design
They help you experience architecture to test it out and also help generate materials for a portfolio if you do apply.
However, there are other means - attend lectures at Princeton sponsor by the School of Architecture; sit in on classes or attend reviews within the School. Contact a local architect and shadow for a day or two. Read a book including Becoming an Architect, 2nd Ed.
Best and do contact me if you have other questions.
