The College Experience, which takes place at the College of St. Rose in conjunction with Living Resources, offers young adults with intellectual disabilities the chance to take classes and make friends in a safe residential setting, and then transition to work and an independent life.

The Educational Assistant (EA) will assist each student in the areas of independent living as well as campus and community integration/participation. The EA will be based in one of the student dorms and occasionally The College of Saint Rose campus and various community locations. The EA will provide small group instruction on all domestic components of independent living, including, but not limited to, how to prepare a balanced meal, proper execution of household chores, and self-advocacy.
