Local Colleges Form Partnership Creating Residential Opportunities

A partnership between Lenoir-Rhyne University and Catawba Valley Community College will allow CVCC students to live on LR’s campus this fall and participate in student life at a four-year college while also taking classes at CVCC.

The program is designed to expose CVCC students to life at a four-year college and prepare them for the transition. All students in the program will enroll in a one-credit class at LR that will meet once a month and discuss transitioning to a four-year college and financial aid opportunities, among other topics.

CVCC students will have access to all LR resources, including sporting events, counseling and health services and student activities. Dining plans also will be available. The program began as the result of conversations between Leah Beth Hubbard, special assistant for strategic initiatives at LR, and Nick Schroeder, executive director of student life and athletics at CVCC.

A pilot group of about six CVCC students lived on the LR campus during the 2021-22 academic year. The goal is to have 25 students for the 2022-23 year. To apply, CVCC students can learn about the Visiting Student Housing program online at
