Residential living is a condition of the summer bridge program but not for the academic year. Students desiring Fall and Spring Residential Living will need to provide a housing security deposit.
The summer residential program is designed to bridge the gap between learning inside and outside of the classroom. Participants will have programs designed exclusively for them during the Bridge Program and the experiences will be beneficial to their personal and academic development while at LOC. Residence Hall staffing will include Resident Assistants, Hall Directors, and Peer Mentors who are trained in assisting residents with transition issues and engaging students in the total college experience.
