Living with other students is an exciting and challenging experience. Not only tolerance but also an understanding of people from very diverse backgrounds can be an enriching and growth experience and learning that Christians do not all think and behave the same way can be enlightening. Residence Life affects a personal growth that occurs within community living and leads to a more successful and adjusted adult life.
