- A weekly Life Skills class for first year students dealing with topics such as study skills, health, and conflict resolution.
- Access to a dedicated Student Life Advisor whose training includes counseling and mediation.
- (Optional) participation in the "Student Adoption" program, which matches students with a family in the community.
