Dining is available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner Monday through Friday for students with a meal plan. The dining hall provides food options for a variety of diets. Students with medically related special dietary needs can work with a campus dietician to ensure their meal needs are met.

Students enrolled in the Residential program have basic membership to Columbia’s Dodge Physical Fitness Center, located on central campus.*
Through one-on-one consultations and workshops, Writing Center consultants offer feedback and strategies to help students improve at every stage of their writing, from brainstorming to final drafts.

Students can sign up for appointments through the High School Student Services Office.
