The Emerging Scholars Program is Divided into three Phases. There is no cost to the student for participation in the first two stages.It is customary for first year students at colleges and universities to reside in the on campus housing. During that time students meet and interact with their many of whom they will never have met, but will develop strong friendships. In an effort to simulate that experience, All Rising Juniors and Seniors will be housed in one of our on campus residential halls.(click here to see residence halls). Clarion University students will have the option of living in the newly constructed two or four student suites locates on campus.(click here to see suites) Meals will be provided in our newly constructed dining hall.(click here to see dining hall)
