Campus Community

Discover a genuinely welcoming community oriented for discovery, both in and out of the classroom. Students on our campus actively participate in athletics, Bible studies, cultural events, friendly residence hall competitions, intramural sports, numerous clubs and organizations and the infamous Homecoming Regatta. And don’t forget our championship 18-hole disc golf course!

As you embark on this new and exciting time in your life, we want to remind you that the college experience involves more than classroom learning. Your college years are marked by personal growth that touches every area of your life. Believing that community is the best context for this type of personal transformation, Crown College places a high priority on the residential experience. Whether you are taking part in a planned program or event, or simply experiencing life together on your floor, know that our staff is working hard to create a residence life experience that will help you grow in all areas of your life.

Take some time to browse this page to learn more about who we are as a Residence Life department; what we value, what we offer and how we can help you during these important years. For further information on Residence Life at Crown, check out the Student Handbook.

    The Study Lab offers open hours for tutoring with no appointment required. Tutoring assistance is provided for numerous courses including but not limited to: Biology, Chemistry, Statistics, American Civilization, World Civilization, and many more. Students are also encouraged to bring research papers and written compositions to the Study Lab for review before submission. In addition to the services already mentioned the Study Lab also runs numerous subject specific study groups throughout each semester.

    The tutors working in the Study Lab have been selected based upon their high academic performance, ability to work with others, and completion of courses in which they are providing assistance. The tutors regularly work with professors to provide students assistance with the most recent materials and information being covered in class.

    Make-up examinations are also scheduled and conducted by the Study Lab. If it becomes necessary for a student to miss a scheduled exam due to illness or an emergency the Study Lab is available to offer assistance. Simply report to the Study Lab and complete a Make-Up Exam form 2 days in advance of the scheduled exam, select one of the available times, and submit the form.

    The Study Lab is conveniently located in the Watne Memorial Library on the 4th floor of the main building. For current hours of operation or if you have any questions please feel free to contact the director at the following:
