Social Activities

The Transitions experience is a fun and exciting one. Apprentices are exposed extensively to both the performing and visual arts and technology, all while taking part in abundant recreational and social opportunities. Art enthusiasts can learn from the Paul Nigra Center’s artists-in-residence and tour museums and performance venues. Those interested in technology can tour companies and learn from our knowledgeable faculty. Weekly events are scheduled to help students experience a range of activities that help expand their social menu and promote opportunities for lasting friendships. Students will be encouraged to explore leisure skills and engage in hobbies, which can provide natural social connections with others.
