Welcome to our campus community. Enrolled participants in the Accelerated Summer College program will attend a required orientation on Sunday, May 22, prior to classes beginning on Monday, May 23. You will have the opportunity to meet other students in the program, be introduced to various campus services, and be made aware of campus and residence hall policies and procedures.

The Residential Experience

Our campus is a 24-hour living and learning community where our students get involved, develop lifelong friendships and become better citizens, both on campus and in society.

The Green Mountain Dining Room is open daily and serves three meals a day with unlimited servings. Einstein Bros. Bagels, located in the student center, is a great place to pick up coffee, a bagel, other snacks or a sandwich. The student center is a great place to utilize the MakerSpace or find a quiet area to study in.
