What is one resource students should know about? Student government funds a Take A Professor to Lunch program. Get to know your profs. They love being able to support you inside and outside of the classroom!

Favorite Class and why? Studies of Literature: Coming of Age, Dr. Mangrum is an incredible professor who knows how to encourage difficult conversations with such grace, and has such a desire for her students to listen to each other well and see where God is working in the hard realities of the world.

What should people bring and what should they NOT bring? People should bring string lights to avoid the harsh hospital-like fluorescent lighting of the rooms, fans for those toasty Santa Barbara days, to go mugs for early 8 ams, and a speaker to play some good jams. Don't bring your entire closet because you really won't wear those clothes you swear you're going to wear even though you never did at home.
