Our goal in Residence Life is to encourage students to:
- Learn to integrate biblical and theological truths regarding “loving one’s neighbor” into daily living.
- Establish meaningful relationships with others in their residence hall and larger campus setting by participating in hall and campus activities.
- Explore the impact that similarities and differences in background and value have on one’s perspective.
- Examine their beliefs about God, the world and themselves through formal and informal interaction with campus community.
