Classes take place in our newly renovated, modern, air-conditioned Ogden Hall and healthy, delicious meals and snacks are served in beautiful Henderson Dining Hall.
Students live in double dormitory rooms with shared bathrooms. Laundry is available in all the dorms at no charge. The entire campus is Wi-Fi accessible.
Afternoon activities include access to our fitness center (weight lifting and cardio rooms), as well as soccer, tennis, basketball, volleyball, baseball, badminton, and lacrosse equipment.
