Living on Campus at Landmark College
A Taste of College Life
The Residence Halls
Not only will students be immersed in rich academic work, they will also live among their fellow students within residence halls on campus. Residence hall rooms are double-occupancy, so students will have a roommate. The halls are separated by wing based on gender. Residence halls are appropriately staffed by professional Resident Directors (RDs) and a host of college-aged mentors, known as Resident Assistants (RAs). This team helps students to bridge the gap between their classroom experiences and the rest of their day and evening. These RDs and RAs, many of whom also have identified learning differences, help students engage in the community and ensure a secure living and learning experience. Students experience a safe, supportive, college-like setting during their three-week stay in the residence halls at Landmark College.
The Dining Hall
Students will enjoy meals together in our dining hall, which offers a wide variety of choices, including an array of hot and cold entrees, soup, pizza, a sandwich and salad bar, and extensive gluten-free options.
We also work to make sure students have plenty of fun during their experience on campus!
Saturdays and Sundays provide an opportunity for students to participate in supervised, well-planned group programs. These excursions are more than fun experiences--they also teach students how to handle themselves in larger groups and provide opportunities for greater independence. Students will enjoy a trip to the Deerfield River, where they will enjoy a rafting trip that includes some mild white-water negotiation. A trip to Six Flags Amusement Park is also always included. Other weekend activities include an on-campus carnival day featuring fun games and activites like slip 'n' slide and even a visit from the Kona Ice Truck and an ever-popular Student Talent Show.
Afternoon activities are an important part of the full program and run every weekday afternoon beginning at 3 p.m. They provide a balance to the day and a chance for each student to try some new kind of engagement. Students are asked to sign up for an activity in which they will participate in on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Friday for the entire program. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, groups of students will rotate through a series of activites including a visit to nearby Brattleboro, a chance to try out our on-campus zip-line and ropes course, as well as seminars that include helpful information that will help direct students as they plan for the future.
Some of the Monday, Wednesday, and Friday activity options planned for 2014 included: basketball, ceramics, artistic self-expression, dance, soccer, theater tech, Magic, The Gathering, film & discussion, and yoga. Students sign up for activities after enrollment in the program.
