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 you and that you’ll feel supported as you discover and pursue God's calling on your 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 15-20 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.

Plan to come back for Homecoming, a Lancer basketball game, a theater production, or just to spend a weekend with your student.

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 frail humanity 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 seeking to make visible the redeeming work of Christ. Find the Speaker Schedule, listen to past messages, and meet the staff!
