  5. Contribute to an environment where academics and spiritual growth can flourish.
  6. Treat ALL roommates and members of Teal Residential College with dignity and respect.

  10. Adhere to the expectations set forth by the Teal Residential College Community Covenant (stated below).

We, the members of the Gordon Teal Residential College, commit ourselves to the glorification of God through service to one another and the development of our God-given abilities. Recognizing that our community is a gift, we will exercise careful stewardship of our academic and spiritual resources. We will strive to exemplify the virtues of the Christian faith and the values of Baylor University. In remembrance of this covenant, we will assemble together to break bread. Esteeming others higher than ourselves, we pledge to encourage, support, and challenge those around us in order to create a loving environment for residents to call home.

Students must also abide by the "General Expectations for Baylor Students" which can be found at this web site:

Noncompliance with community standards and expectations can be grounds for removal from Teal Residential College.
