Application brochure available in mid-December. Check back for more information!
The Residence Halls
Not only will students be immersed in rich academic work, they will also live among their fellow students within a single residence hall on campus. Residence hall rooms are double-occupancy, so students will have a roommate, and the hall is seperated by floor based on gender. The residence hall is appropriately staffed by professional Resident Directors and college-aged mentors, known as Resident Assistants. This team helps students to bridge the gap between their classroom experiences and the rest of their day and evening. The RDs and RAs 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 Saint Vincent College.
The Dining Hall
Students will enjoy meals together in the dining hall, which offers a wide variety of choices, including an array of hot and cold entrees, a sandwich and salad bar and yummy desserts. Dining services are fully equipped to handle a variety of dietary restrictions.
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 well-planned group programs. These excursions are more than fun experiences -- they also teach students how to handle themselves in larger groups. Students may enjoy a visit to Westmoreland Arts and Heritage Festival. Another possible weekend excursion is an afternoon at Ligonier Camp which includes a high ropes course, laser tag, and a "vomit comet" for the more adventurous! A visit to Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Waters, described as "the most unique home in the world..." and an on-campus talent show are also in the works for students attending the Landmark College Summer High School Program at Saint Vincent College in 2015.
Afternoon activities are an important part of the full program and run every weekday afternoon beginning at 3:00 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 Thursday, students will paticipate in an interactive educational series which will include sessions on stress management, financial literacy, interview basics and understanding your social media footprint. On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, students will have a choice of several options, which will be revealed very soon!
