Summer Academy Residential Living
Summer Academy students choosing to live and eat on campus are housed together for two weeks in the same residence hall. As a part of this social learning community you will deepen your understanding of yourself and develop meaningful relationships. The activities planned throughout the week after class and over the weekend, and the spontaneous happenings in the hall, will help you make the most of this pre-college experience and encourage you to become more healthy, engaged and successful.
