Mentoring is an opportunity for new students to develop relationships with fellow students, as well as faculty and staff, while going deeper in their faith.
Campus Ministries encourage all students, staff, faculty, and coaches to set aside 9:50 – 10:35 AM on Wednesdays to do Life Together. These groups promote personal spiritual growth and foster healthy community relationships. Find out more in Chapel on Wednesday, January 20 at 9:50 am. Life Together group offerings will soon be available on Crown App.
Mentoring is an opportunity for life-transformation through an intentional relationship to develop spiritual and emotional maturity.
Life change is caught as much as taught and we need models who can show us what it means to walk with Christ. Mentoring fosters meaningful conversations about life. If you are interested in being connected with a mentor, you’ll find the mentoring application under the Campus Ministries tile on the Crown Mobile App or contact Martha Swift, Director of Student Engagement (email@example.com).

Get a jump-start on your packing.
Below is a list of items that many students use while in college. It’s not a complete list, nor is it necessary to have everything on the list. And don’t worry about bringing everything at once. It’s a good idea to wait and see what you really need before purchasing items.
Every room in the residence hall is equipped with a bed (extra-long twin), desk and chair, armoire/drawers for each student. Laundry facilities are located in each residence hall.
A laundry card that functions like a debit card allows students to add money to their account to pay for laundry on campus.
List of what you should bring to campus:
- Personal décor to spice up your dorm.
- Loads of blankets and pillows — to keep you comfy.
- Bedsheets (Twin XL) and a mattress pad, to ensure a good night’s sleep.
- Winter clothes. Seriously, Minnesota gets chilly! So grab a parka and some boots.
- Alarm clock (or alarm clock app — really anything so you aren’t late for class).
- Cleaning supplies — to keep your place neat and tidy.
- Clothes hangers — to keep you looking good.
- Laundry detergents and baskets.
- Shower curtain (unless you live in Main).
- Towels and washcloths.
- Laptop. (If you don’t have a laptop, computers are available on campus during most business hours.)
List of what you might consider bringing to campus:
- Mini-Fridge (4.3 cu.ft. or less) — to keep the energy drinks cold. (Refrigerators are provided in Weldin, Tewinkel, and Faith Village.)
- Swimwear, to tour Minnesota’s 10,000 lakes.
- Power strip, to plug in all your gadgets.
- Desk/floor lamp — in case you want a bit more ambiance.
- Desk supplies (organizer, stapler, scissors, ruler, calculator, pens, etc.).
- Snacks (just don’t eat them all the first night).
- Board games and cards, for roommate bonding time.
- Raincoat and/or umbrella, in case of unexpected precipitation.
- Iron and ironing board
- Dishes and utensils
- Printer (However, all students have access to printers with a free printing allowance each semester)
- Bike with a lock
- Extra wastebasket
- Shower caddy (for students living in Main hall)
List of things that you cannot bring to campus:
- Candles, or pretty much anything that has an open flame (we prefer our buildings to not be on fire).
- Halogen lamps (still don’t want our buildings on fire).
- Appliances with open heating elements (toasters, hot plates, space heaters, etc. — still don’t want our buildings on fire).
- Weapons of any kind, including airsoft and paintball gear.
- Pets, unless it’s a fish (fish are friends, not food).
- Fireworks of any kind (pretty much anything that explodes).
