Adopt-a-Dorm Coming Fall 2021

We are looking forward to working with our amazing parents and family members to once again support our freshman and transfer halls this year!

Adopt-A-Dorm is a program to enhance freshman, first-year, and transfer students' learning, living, and community experiences both inside and outside the dorm. Adoptive parents and family members will be dedicated to helping the Housing and Residence Life (HRL) staff group comprised of Residential Advisors, Spiritual Life Advisors, and the Residential Director, better meet the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of the students in their residence hall (dorm). Adoptive parents will bless students and the HRL staff group by Assisting, Donating, Organizing, Praying and Treating their adopted hall during the academic months of September to April.  Parents and family members close by or far away are welcome to adopt.  Adopt your student's hall today. Sign-up links coming soon!
