Summer Arch housing fiasco

My daughter is part of the first class for which Summer Arch is mandatory, and i'm starting to get some bad feelings that this sudden expansion of the program isn't being planned very well. For one thing, they're making all the kids who have off-campus housing move back "on campus" for the summer...except that the only housing available is at the Colonie Apartments, right next to the Rite-Aid off Hoosick St. This isn't even a real dorm, has no dining hall, and is much farther away from classrooms than the "off-campus" housing where my daughter and her friends are now. When I tried discussing this with one of the ARCH directors, she apparently had no idea where the Colonie apartments were (!) The justification for making so many ARCH kids trek out there rather than stay where they are is that the ARCH is going to offer programs, support services, etc. based at the on-campus residence and it's important part of the ARCH experience. It sound like they're winging it to me. Does anyone have any more insight?44 replies
