BASIC NEEDS AT OTIS COLLEGE
Listed below are resources and services that the College offers to address and provide support for some challenges that many students face, such as food insecurity, housing insecurity, and lack of access to basic needs.
- Feed-A-Need Program
Otis College established the Feed-A-Need Food Assistance Program in Fall 2017 in order to address food insecurity across campus. Students who apply for the Feed-A-Need program must answer a few questions using an online form, and meet with the Dean of Student Affairs in order to address any other issues the student may be struggling with related to financial insecurity. Students are advised in a holistic manner in order to best support the overall student’s success. Students can apply to receive either 10 or 14 meals a semester, and can only apply once a semester. The online form can be found here.
Since Fall 2017, Otis College issued approximately 900 meals to date!
