The Office of Residence Life offers the Visual and Performing Arts Learning Community which will be located on the 4th Floor in Merick hall. The VPA Themed Community offers an environment supporting students with a shared interest in music, dramatic performance, and artistic expression. This program integrates first-year students and upper-class students within the variety of majors in the college to create a support and social network of artists.
The Visual and Performing Arts Themed Community is limited to 40 students and is open to both new and returning students. Any student who desires to participate in the community must indicate their preference through the Contract for University Housing assignment process. Students participating in this community benefit from informal opportunities to interact with faculty in the college through programs and events in the residence hall.
To sign up for this community, returning students should participate in the Priority Sign-Up process. New students should indicate their preference for this community on their Contract for University Housing and then fill out and return the application that they receive in the mail.
There is no extra cost associated with the Learning Community Program; however, students are expected to sign and agree to a set of expectations for living in a Themed Community. This will be available at the time of Priority Sign-Up (returning students) or included in the application packet (new students).
The Office of Residence Life is proud to partner with the Holland School of Visual and Performing Arts to offer the VPA Themed Community as a housing option. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Residence Life at (573) 651-2274 or email@example.com
