    College is much more than a pursuit of information and getting a diploma. It is an opportunity for personal and relational growth as students are challenged with deeper relationships, the development of life skills, and most importantly, the answer to “who am I”?

    While this process of growth can be encouraged through different college experiences, many students experience it most intensely through Residence Life. So think about living on campus.
