We promote socializing, living and working together through campus activities, mod living, and spiritual development. Dormitories are organized so that two students share a room that is also part of a mod. Mods are units of five or eight rooms that are led by a second-year student called a resident assistant or RA. Your RA is available to answer your questions as you transition to a new culture.
