Philosophy and Purpose of Residential Life:
The philosophy of the Office of Residential Life is to give residential students an opportunity to learn and grow in a living and learning environment that fosters and empowers personal, academic, emotional, spiritual, and community development. The residence halls are an excellent place to meet new friends, participate in numerous activities, develop new interests, and learn to live in a community rich in diversity. We encourage residential students to become an active member of this diverse community.
Our purpose is to create and provide a student-centered, customer-orientated, unified, comfortable, supportive, and safe environment, where students can be allowed to continue to grow as responsible and respectful individuals. We seek to promote a student culture, where residents are encouraged to be generous with their time, talents, and resources in service to others in their residences, the campus community, and the world at large.
The Residential Community:
Living on campus enables you to have all the campus resources at your fingertips. In addition, living on campus provides you the opportunity to get involved in various clubs, sports, and organizations. It is a great place to meet new people and form lasting friendships. The Office of Residential Life is dedicated to providing students with a safe, comfortable, supportive, and student-centered living environment. Welcome Home!!

Quotes By Residents Regarding Residential Living:
- "I definitely feel that the most enjoyable aspect of living in the dorms is the privilege of waking up every morning, looking out my window, and seeing a beautiful sunrise creeping above the Concordia Nature Preserve!" Valerie Cavazos, '12
- "I love when I look out my window I can see a few of God's beautiful creations! It's a huge reminder of who He is and what He created for us! My favorite part is when the sun is setting or rising. It is so relaxing. :)" Jennifer Stallings, '10
- "Living in the residence halls is a great experience because you are close to where everything is happening. I like the fact that I don't have to drive to meet up with my friends; I can just walk down to the dorm lobby and hang out with them. My favorite thing to do with my friends is take over the lobby when no one else is around. It's nice to have a big screen TV to ourselves!" Jessica Waldron, '12
