We believe that working to establish strong communities that consist of shared experiences, lasting connections and an appreciation for individual diversity and identity is key to the success of our students.  While our staff and student leaders provide a myriad of opportunities and activities we encourage you to be an active participant in your experience and engaged within your residence and campus community.  There are so many benefits to gain from a well rounded experience, and learning can be just as impactful in an non-academic environment as inside the classroom.  So make the most of your experience and take advantage of our amazing Gryphon community!
