Dorms: yes or no?

25 Sep

For many people, dorm life is one big crazy blur of loud music, pizza, and video games. Here at my christian college, those are all present. But that’s not all that dorm life at a Christian college entails. Living in a community of other Christians is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. No other time will you be able to live on a floor with guys from all over the country and even the world, who are of all ages, all majors, and from all sorts of backgrounds. I can’t count the number of times I have stayed up till 2 am talking with friends, chilling in their room and discussing all sorts of things, from theology to why the Denver Broncos are the best football team. Of course, not everyone will be a fellow believer or want to spend this kind of time with the people they live with, but therein lies an opportunity to minister to someone who may be struggling and need support, or may need the Gospel.

Will I always live in the dorms? Probably. Unfortunately, they tend to be more expensive than say an apartment, but again, they present unmatched opportunities for discipleship and fellowship. I would encourage you, based on my experience at a Christian college, to try living in the dorms and experiencing just how much fun and how beneficial they really are.
