The Mothers Living & Learning program, housed in Madonna Hall, is an innovative residential option for single mothers and their children who would like to pursue a college degree full-time while living on campus. This program is for women who have up to two children (at least 6 weeks of age and under the age of 10 by the mother's graduation year), are dedicated to continuing their education, and are seeking community living opportunities that recognize they are parents as well as college students.
The Madonna Hall features:
·A large community area on each residential floor
·Suites with four bedrooms, common area with kitchenette, and bathroom
·Free laundry on each floor
24-hour security is available and each student is given a key to their room and an access card for the building elevator.
Along with all CSM students, Mothers Living & Learning residents can take part in the numerous services and opportunities on CSMís campus. This includes learning support, tutoring services and career services through our Achievement Center; leadership opportunities through our Student Leadership and Organizations Office; and counseling services. Students and their children may also utilize the Lied Fitness Center as long as children are supervised.
The Assistant Director of Residence Life serves as the hall director for MLL. The Director of Single Parent Success serves as a great resource for all MLL residents. MLL residents are asked to attend monthly meetings to discuss upcoming events, review policies and create a sense of community. MLL residents may also become active in the Motherís Activity Council.
MLL students are responsible for finding and financing daycare for their children. Spellman Child Development Center is on our campus and is a great and convenient resource. In addition, other than 10 days in December when the campus is closed for Christmas Break, the program provides on-campus housing year-round, by contracting to live in the halls for the fall, spring and summer semesters.
