We hope the resources below help you stay connected with your student as you continue to walk with him/her through this next season of life.
At Grace, we provide a comprehensive program to assist first-year students in their adjustment to college life. It is our hope that Grace will become a fast second home for your student and that they'll feel supported as they discover and pursue God's calling on their life. The central components of the first-year program are Welcome Weekend (orientation) and Freshman Foundations (LAC 101). Throughout orientation and the course, freshmen meet in breakout groups of 15 to 20 students led by a Faculty Mentor and a Student Mentor (an upperclass student). These groups are designed to give first-year students the kind of support needed to adapt to college life.

Come visit your student. You can view maps and directions here. Our Visitor's Center can help make your trip a success by providing athletics tickets, meal passes, information on chapel meetings and anything else you'd like to experience. Plan to come back for Homecoming, a Lancer basketball game, a theatre production, or just to spend a weekend with your student.
Don't let the distance separate you and your student. Show them you're thinking of them with a care package. Find out how to celebrate your student's birthday, send them a treat during finals week and much more.

Chapel is the cornerstone of student life. The Grace experience would be incomplete without it. Chapel provides a chance for the Grace family to gather and experience Christ and His present work in the lives of people from around the globe. Through chapel, students are encouraged to see past themselves to the greater story that God is writing. It’s an environment deliberately set aside to complement the classroom and residence hall experiences in awakening, equipping and connecting learner-leaders, who are seeking to make visible the redeeming work of Christ. Find the speaker schedule, listen to past messages, and meet the staff.
From t-shirts to headbands to water bottles, you'll find Grace apparel and products for your whole family. In addition, Grace has partnered with Tree of Life to provide free textbook rentals* to all students as part of their tuition. This means no more worrying about the cost of textbooks because your student will get every book they need on the first day of class at no additional cost!
*Excludes consumable items.
