Living on campus in one of our dorms connects you to the vibrant life of PBC. It is a vital part of a rich, well-rounded experience. The close-knit, supportive dorms offer students a place to live and work that distinctly enhances their college experience by putting them at the center of everything: classes, the library, recreational facilities, ministry experiences, volunteer opportunities and more.
Dorm life links your daily life more intimately to the life of the campus. You’ll live in close proximity to friends, peers and colleagues who are all having similar experiences. Together, you’ll create a campus community that is purposeful, energetic, and full of life. The majority of our students who have lived in the dorms say that it changed their lives by giving them opportunities to grow in relational skills, character and personal discipline, and giving them life-long friendships.
Living on campus at PBC generates an opportunity for depth in which the students themselves often refer to as the “green-house effect.” Becoming immersed in rich soil surrounded by others with similar hearts and minds can cause rapid growth for those who give themselves to the process. Campus housing is provided not just for student convenience, but primarily as an instrument to assist student development. Living in community provides unique opportunity for accelerated growth in character as well as social and leadership skills. A student’s dorm experience brings one of the most long term impacting aspects of PBC. Life-long friendships are developed through the tools of critical thinking, problem solving and conflict resolution as Biblical relationship principles are put into practice.
Each dorm divides into Small Groups. This is a great way to go deep with dorm-mates and ensure support will be there during difficult moments. Life-long friendships very often result from Small Group connections. One way peer leadership is emphasized and put into practice is through the means of small group leading. As a peer leader facilitates the small group, each member is able to discuss issues ranging from academic and Biblical questions to expressing aspects of their own personal journey. Students are able to support each other through open discussion, accountability and prayer.
