Living at the The Ridge will increase your academic and social success. It will also provide a safe and focused learning environment for online learning!

“Many traditional four-year colleges have a strong foundation in campus culture. And experts worry that missing out can be detrimental to a student’s academic and social success.” – US News

“Schools provide critical services that help meet the needs of [students], especially those who are disadvantaged, through supporting the development of social and emotional skills, creating a safe environment for learning, identifying and addressing neglect and abuse, fulfilling nutritional needs, and facilitating physical activity.” – CDC

It’s very hard to have the entire college experience if you’re not living close to campus.  Let’s face it, you’re going to have way more fun living at The Ridge than you would living in your mother’s basement.
