On Campus Accommodations Experience

This experience is possible for all programs with the exception of Exploring Engineering Academy.

We are thrilled to offer residential accommodations as a part of the Summer Youth Academy Series beginning this summer. Students will have the opportunity to stay in one of our residential halls with other students participating in the program to foster new friendships and fun experiences.

Students will be staying in a suite located in an air conditioned residence hall. Each suite offers 2 oversized bedrooms joined together by a bathroom for 6 students. Each participant will receive a bed, desk, and dresser located in their room. There is one common room located on each floor in addition to the main lounge on the first floor.

Outside of the participant’s program which takes place 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. (exact times are dependent on the specific program), students will be able to participate in teambuilding activities as well as social programming to allow for a chance to experience student life on a college campus. These programs are designed just for Summer Youth Academy registrants.

Students will arrive on Sunday and be provided dinner on the night of their arrival. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided for the rest of the week and pickup will be on Friday evening (or the evening of the final day of their program).

During their program, participants will be supervised by our Residential Life and Conference Services Resident Assistants who will be supervising students overnight in the residential hall as well as guide students around our campus.
