Life on campus

Break-out music sessions. Residence hall talent shows. Student-run Bible studies. Sharing meals with your best friends. Life on campus means becoming part of a community, sharing something meaningful with those in your life. Photos of life on campus

That’s why residence life as a student is so important to your academic experience.

Full-time single students live on campus in one of our six residence halls, staffed by RDs and their assistants as well as trained student Community Advisors (CAs), Pastoral Assistants (PAs), and Ministry Assistants (MAs).
