Service and Simple Living-Learning Community

The Peter-Hans Kolvenbach, S.J. Community is a distinctive service-learning living experience available to eight current students entering their sophomore, junior or senior years. This community provides students with the opportunity to live with other students engaged in service and simple living. This living experience exemplifies what it means for students to live “Jesuit in a new way.”
