What is the best part about your on-campus community?

Collins is a community where people want to be because of the legacy. Once they arrive Collins is full of energy and excitement as the residences experience Baylor for the first time together creating deep lifelong friendships.

What does authentic Christian community mean to you?

Authentic Christian Community acknowledges the need for togetherness, which requires that we spend time laughing with each other, eating, perhaps crying and definitely engaging those topics that always seem to surface late at night. It means making an effort to see people for what they are—creations who are dealing with the conundrum of being human.

What is your favorite part about being an RHD, Resident Chaplain, or FIR?

College students are living more fully, digging deep into who they are and what they believe, and it is a Resident Director’s greatest privilege to walk alongside and help shape that journey.
