Welcome Week Wisdom

Get involved!  Attend everything on the schedule.  These few days have been designed to introduce you to Crown, your academic experience, provide opportunities for you to develop new friendships, and help you understand the resources that Crown has to offer.

Yes, ATTEND everything. There are MANY opportunities to win prizes, but you MUST be present to win…Target gift cards, gas gift cards, Domino’s Gift cards, just to name a few…

Get to know your Resident Assistant (RA), your Welcome Week Core Group Leader, Discipleship Team, Campus Chaplains, and other Welcome Week Student Leaders.  These will all be excellent resources for you as you begin your academic career.

Meet different types of students.  New students include athletes, international students, commuter students, traditional residential students, transfer students, non-traditional and PSEO students.

Meet faculty and staff. Develop relationships early.  These individuals are here to equip, empower, and challenge you in your learning.

Life Together

Life Together


Life together is just that: Life. Together. Join faculty, staff and students while we dive deeper into God’s word in powerful and practical ways.




Mentoring is an opportunity for life-transformation through an intentional relationship to develop spiritual and emotional maturity.

We had a great time.

Welcome Week is always one of our favorite times of the year! This special week kicks off the community engagement you will experience throughout your time at Crown. Check out this video to get a taste of what your experience could be like.

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.
  • Wastebasket.
  • 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)
  • Speakers

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).
