Residence Life

Mission/Vision

In keeping with the mission of CSU, the Residence Life Office strives to create an environment that is conducive to the intellectual, emotional, spiritual and relational well-being of each residential student. Integration of faith in learning, leading and serving are elements that produce opportunities for Residence Life to partner in building a thriving learning community within our residence halls.

Living on campus will provide many new experiences that include making new friends, facing new challenges and developing memories that will last you a lifetime. We feel that all of these are important parts of a quality educational experience.

Our mission is to create a community that honors God and enables students to thrive. We do this through pursuing five themes: Jesus, Neighbor, Community, Disciple and Accountability.
