Language & Thinking

Language & Thinking

Bard Admission determines which Transfer students need to attend Language & Thinking. 

All first-year unmoderated students are required to live on campus and are assigned to live with at least one roommate. First-year students are assigned housing based on the timely submission of a Housing Profile and Facility Use Agreement form found on the Admissions Office website. Although it is often difficult to fulfill specific requests, every effort is made by the Office of Residence Life & Housing to do so. Students are typically notified of their placement by mid July via their Bard email which is assigned in June. Students are housed for Language & Thinking and Citizen Science in their permanent room assignments.
