Throughout the three-week program, AHA participants reside on campus in Rutgers University dormitories. The “living and learning” environment allows students to study and room together. The experience builds important life skills such as compatibility, tolerance of differences, self-discipline, and responsibility.
Specially-trained and qualified Aim High Resident Advisors (RAs) live in dorm rooms on the same floor as the student rooms. These RAs supervise the students and help to ensure their safety and security. All meals during the three-week program are provided at no cost to students.
The on-campus experience not only teaches students about available resources provided by colleges, but also helps motivate them to take advantage of all of the academic and social experiences a college life can offer.
