Student Spotlight


Meet Travis !

"I chose to come to Marywood because I wanted to learn how to live independently."

Join us to view the SOAR Students On-Campus Achieving Results Documentary April 1, 2016 in the Comerford Theater (CNHS 126) in the Center for Natural Health Sciences on the campus of Marywood University. Doors open at 6 PM; showing starts 6:20 PM. Experience first-hand the journey SOAR graduates Rachel, Quinn, John, Daniel, and James have taken since completion of the SOAR program and how it prepared them for independent employment. Light refreshments served.

SOAR students are going on a field trip to Price Chopper today! They've spent time making a budget and coming up with a shopping list for a week's worth of groceries and supplies! They are looking forward to living and cooking in the SOAR apartment together. Hope you find good deals as you all bring home the bacon today!

Last week, SOAR students took their spring field trip to the Viewmont Mall! Researching and practicing public transportation routes, making purchases, and ordering food are helpful life skills. It looks like they really enjoyed lunch!
