Don’t just survive, THRIVE!

 Mission Statement:  to build a safe and authentic THRIVE Community where every student is welcomed, celebrated and supported without judgment, so you can fully grow into who you are and make our school and the world a more wonderful place.

Our community is for EVERY student, regardless of your background, age, race, gender or belief background.  We want to walk alongside you as you figure out who you are, what you believe, and how you want to live.  We are here to encourage, support, cheer you on (and feed you candy)!

What does THRIVE look like?

Student-led Huddle Groups 

Huddles are small student-led groups of five or fewer students who meet weekly to chat and do life together. Organized around your schedule, huddle groups provide a guaranteed safe space where you can give and receive support, laughs and encouragement. Huddles build resilience and well-being as students grow friendships, enjoy snacks and thrive with a weekly topical chat, a personal check-in and confidential non-judgmental encouragement. Sign up for huddles here!

There are different types of huddles depending on where you’re at and what you need: 

  • THRIVE Huddles (including 2SLGBTQIS+ Huddles) to make friends and contemplate life in a safe place.
  • Faith-based Huddles to make friends, ponder life’s questions and grow in the context of your personal faith and beliefs.

Student Leadership

Our strong student leadership team works together to run huddles and community events on all three campuses while developing deep and meaningful friendships with each other and the students they serve.  We believe strongly in mentoring and we encourage and help our student leaders to never stop growing.  We provide lots of fun opportunities to learn and develop your gifts and skills. Join our leadership team!

One-on-One Support

The Spiritual Care Facilitator is here to help you thrive during your time at SLC. We would love to connect with you one-on-one to provide you with support and encouragement during your college experience.

Spiritual and Religious Supports

Are you looking for a church? A mosque? A gurdwara? A temple? Finding a spiritual community of like-minded people while you study can provide a wonderful source of community, peace and support.  Please reach out to Kathy for help finding a religious community within the school or in the community in which you live. 

We need each other to live joyfully and authentically in our busy world. We need YOU! We’d love to have you join our community. Join THRIVE.
