• Learn how to utilize time effectively and manage commitments
ISBVI supports the need to develop independent living skills for students who will be transitioning soon to post-secondary education or adult life. This program is designed to provide instructional assistance in a small group residential home environment in order to develop this skill set. Students work on cooking, cleaning, basic home maintenance skills, money and time management, and general organizational skills in houses located adjacent to the dormitories. This opportunity is available to Junior and Senior students who demonstrate self-sufficiency within the dormitory setting. Applications are excepted each semester for interested students.
ISBVI offers a wide array of recreational and leisure experiences for students. Students have the opportunity to develop balance in their social interactions, increase their self-esteem, gain new experiences, increase their awareness of leisure resources, and develop culturally and emotionally all while having fun with peers. Students can select and participate in recreational activities that are offered on and off campus. The Recreation Coordinator, in collaboration with the recreation staff, monitor student activities during the time frame of 5:30 pm and 7:30 pm Monday through Thursday. Activities vary widely and may include swimming, walking on the Monon Trail, bowling, fishing, billiards, basketball, cooking, skating, trips to local museums, concerts, festivals and local restaurants to name a few. Parent and student suggestions for activities are always welcome.
