Packing & Preparing for Summer for Success Residence Life

Tuition for the Summer for Success High School Program includes all meals, travel, trips, housing, entertainments, tuition/books/supplies (not including those listed above).

1. Discretionary spending money is for each student and their families to decide. Spending money may be considered for souvenirs at theme or water parks, and personal snacks; we recommend a range of $100-150 as an appropriate personal spending amount. The College does not recommend large sums of money be brought to campus. 2. Students will not have access to kitchens in the residence hall. All meals will be provided at the Beacon College Dining Hall and at off-campus activities/excursions. 3. Snacks and drinks will be offered during the day and evening hours in the community areas and student lounge at the residence hall. 4. Electronics: Students are allowed to bring hand-held gaming systems, laptop/tablets, etc. for personal use in their dorm rooms. Students will have access to computers for academic purposes through our labs and centers. We will not be collecting personal electronics or laptops overnight. 5. Residence Hall Services: a. Furnishings: All rooms are furnished with beds, mattresses, dressers, desks, closets, and overhead lighting. Included in the cost of Summer for Success, students will be provided with toilet paper, shower curtains, and misc. cleaning and laundry supplies. b. Laundry facilities: Each floor of the residence hall is equipped with washers and dryers for student use. Quarters are not required. Detergent & supplies will be available in the community areas and student lounge. c. Internet/Wifi: Residence halls have Internet and email access.

As a reminder, this three-week program is intensive and students will not be spending a lot of free time in the dormitory. While you may want to bring a lot of items, please remember that many items required for college dorming is not necessary for a short, three-week experience.
