Breaks are important for re-setting the mind and body to help regain focus, increase productivity, and reduce stress.

All classrooms are equipped with up-to-date technology allowing for live-streamed learning for those at a distance.

Many life-giving conversations and memories happen over shared meals. Faculty are also known to join students for lunches, furthering the mentoring and engaging in conversations about life.

The library and the Higher Grounds Café are great locations on campus for students to study and work on assignments in a quiet space.
