The housing application process can sometimes be intimidating to students, especially those in their first year. It can bring excitement for new adventures and community connections coming in the future. At the same time, it can be another reminder that things can be different in adult life; that university housing is different than home, and necessitates involvement, following instructions, and understanding the procedure. The application process is not perfect—but it is still a good and important process that empowers each student to make decisions for their immediate future, with a safety net. Simultaneously, this process develops critical thinking skills and tools to make informed housing decisions critical to their post-college future, including: finding roommates, yielding to rules/restrictions, considering pros and cons of multiple housing options, strategizing, waiting on the Lord where the future is not yet defined, and compromising with roommates. Since you are Parents, Guardians, Friends, and Mentors, the students will most likely reach out to you for support during Housing Selection. The best ways to support them during this season are:
  • Listening as they verbally or emotionally process the exciting opportunities or potential challenges before them.
  • Encouraging them to stay engaged in the process and move forward.
  • Assuring them everything is going to work out and be fine in the long run - God has them in the palm of His hand!
  • Asking key questions to help them self-identify solutions should a problem arise.
  • Praying for and with them as they make decisions about their future.
We sincerely care about each and every one of these students, and will be available to guide, pray with, and empower them along the way.

Warmest Regards, 
Residential Life Team
