2016-17 Course Catalog - 23
All Stevens Grant students are eligible to live on campus. After
Grant students are accommodated, any additional rooms are
made available on a rental basis to non-scholarship students.
Residence halls have similar amenities including laundry facilities,
cable TV hook-up, two computer jacks for internet access,
telephone access, and recreation rooms which contain TVs, pool
tables, and in some areas, ping-pong tables. All rooms are air
conditioned and have fire alarm and sprinkler systems.
Within the dorms, the College expects that students will maintain
their rooms in a clean and sanitary condition for the purposes of
good hygiene and appearance. Moreover, each residence hall has
professional supervision, but within the governing framework,
students are directly involved in the operation of their respective
halls via an elected Residence Hall Council. As such, students
have the opportunity to establish activities; draft policies and
procedures; enhance conflict resolution and communication
skills; and play an integral role in making the residence halls a
wholesome living and learning environment.
Note: A student who requests housing accommodations due to
a disability must complete the housing accommodations request
form (which is available on the College website) and provide the
appropriate documentation to the special needs coordinator for
review and accommodations approval.
Housing away from the campus is all privately owned and is
separate and independent of the College. The College does not
own, operate, or supervise these properties. Information regarding
off-campus housing is available from the director of residence life.
The Thaddeus Stevens College Branch Campus has allowed
the College to expand and provide student services in multiple
areas. In addition to residential space, there is a recreation center,
nursing station, and a computer/study lab available for student
use. Student peer tutors are also available during posted hours for
academic programs located at the Branch Campus.
Jones Dining Hall
Thaddeus Stevens College has a spacious, comfortable dining hall
that serves 19 meals a week. The dining hall is closed during official
school recesses and during the summer, except for the summer
college-level education programs from late June to early August.
Tuition students can buy meals on a cash basis or purchase a fiveor seven-day meal plan.
Students who purchase a meal plan will have their student ID
cards activated to use in the dining hall. Thaddeus Stevens College
offers two different meal plans for students who wish to eat meals
on a regular basis during the regular semesters. The meal plan
prices reflect the cost for one year.
* Breakfast $ 4.60
(All prices are subject to change.)
Vending machines are located at convenient locations around the
campus. Items include beverages and snacks.
Bulldog Café I and Bulldog Café II
At Thaddeus Stevens College, students always have the opportunity
to enjoy a meal or just a quick snack from one of two Bulldog
Cafés. Bulldog Café I is located on the first floor of the Schwalm
Student Center on the main campus. Bulldog Café II is located
adjacent to the main lobby at the Branch Campus.
At times, hours of operation at the Bull Dog Cafés may change
to better serve student needs or when conflicting with a campuswide activity or event.
The College Store
The College Store is located at the Cence House, immediately
adjacent to the main campus on East End Avenue. The store offers
items that reflect the pride and colors of Thaddeus Stevens College
of Technology. Some items that can be purchased are T-shirts,
sweatshirts, jackets, ball caps, and sweaters. Many of the items
display the logo of the Thaddeus Stevens College bulldog, the
official mascot. The story of the College can also be found online
at the College's website.
Participation in campus activities and organizations is encouraged
at the College. These activities are designed to enhance
interpersonal skills, self-development, and interaction with others
from different backgrounds. Students have the opportunity to meet
other students, faculty, and staff in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
Special campus-wide entertainment include homecoming events,
musical events, and various types of popular entertainment.
Resident hall activities include pool, ping-pong, and dart
tournaments, movie nights, pizza parties, dorm room decorating
contests, and various holiday activities.
The College seeks to provide a genuine environment that
celebrates diversity and fosters cultural support mechanisms for
all students. Monthly events are planned to learn and celebrate
diversity including designated events, speakers, and activities.
Student groups also contribute in celebrating multiculturalism,
including the Black Student Union, Young Lions support group
and the Latino Scholars organization.
