Learning Communities


A community designed exclusively for sophomores located in Chardin Hall that encourages residents to examine fundamental assumptions they make about themselves and how they think about existence. By taking Core courses specially designed for residents in that emphasize deep, critical reflection and ethical/spiritual analysis, residents will prepare to take the next steps of their vocational discernment process. Sojourners will reflect upon and clarify their skills, interests, and values; connect academic interests to career possibilities; and develop the practical tools needed to pursue a purposeful path forward. Programs and activities include community dinner and discussion nights, career and networking events, and a discernment-focused Sophomore Retreat. Throughout the year, we will explore what brings residents the greatest sense of purpose in their lives, and how to turn passions into professions.

Location: Floors 2 & 3 in Chardin Hall
