Student Life

Within a campus dedicated to the training of highly talented students in ballet, the Office of Student Life is committed to providing a high quality of life and maintaining students' well-being beyond their ballet training.

This commitment is realized in the following ways:

  • Through attending to the developmental needs of students, enhancing their personal and professional growth and instilling a sense of responsibility and citizenship.
  • Through fostering and promoting a well-rounded approach to the emotional, social, physical, cultural and intellectual, and artistic aspects of students’ lives.
  • Through providing age-appropriate programs and services in the areas of counseling and health, housing and residence life, activities, community rules and regulations.
  • Through establishing a living and learning environment, a safe and healthy community where growth can occur and the integration of artistic, academic and life skills is the overall goal.
