EAP Summer Orientation 2012
Letter to Students/Parents (referential)
Welcome to WestConn! The Admissions Office has informed me that you have been accepted into the Educational Achievement and Access Program (EAP), and I look forward to meeting with you and your family member during housing check-in, and EAP orientation on June 24th.
Students are scheduled to check-in to Litchfield Hall on Sunday, June 24th, 2012 at 1:00 PM. We will have EAP orientation for all students and parents on Sunday starting at 4:30 p.m. Classes will begin on Monday, June 25th and end on Friday, July 27th. (Five-weeks). Students are required to live on campus during the week and leave on all weekends, and leave on Friday's by 12:00pm.
For your stay in Litchfield Hall please bring bedding for a twin bed, towels/wash cloths, shower clogs, hangers, a lamp, and other important items to make your stay comfortable. Litchfield Hall, located on the Midtown Campus is not air-conditioned, so you may want to bring a fan, but air-conditioners are not allowed. In addition, please leave the televisions, boom boxes and stereos at home! A small clock radio is recommended and acceptable. Laptops and personal computers are allowed in the dorms, but at your own risk and liability. WestConn is not responsible for anything lost or stolen. (Please visit the webpage for the housing department for more details on residence hall regulations and policies.)
The Great Hollow Wilderness retreat is scheduled for Friday, July 17th through Sunday, July 19th. The July 17th through 19th weekend will be the only weekend that students will stay on campus - all other weekends, students will be allowed to leave by 1:00 pm Friday afternoon and return by 7:00 PM on Sunday. This special weekend will include "In the Heights" a Broadway show in New York City on Friday night and a Saturday/Sunday Great Hollow Wilderness overnight outdoor adventure experience in New Fairfield, CT. (More information will be distributed at orientation.)

It is important that all students forward a copy of their immunization records to the Health Services Office. Students will not be allowed to stay on-campus if they do not submit the immunization records and proof of meningitis shot by June 24th. In addition, students should have submitted appropriate SAT scores or taken required placement tests in English or Math, applied for financial aid and submitted supporting documentation to the Financial Aid Office
If you do not plan to attend the summer program, please call or contact my office immediately. No students will be allowed into the program after the June 24th Orientation. If there are any special/emergency conditions that may prevent you from attending/arriving on June 24th, please call immediately to see if an arrangement can be made. Due to escalating program costs, all students are required to cover the cost for their books. Some students, based on family income, will be charged a sliding fee, as determined by the Financial Aid Office for attending the EAP Summer 2012 Program.
I look forward to seeing you on Sunday, June 24th at 3:00 PM!
Director, Pre-Collegiate & Access Programs
