New Student Leadership Opportunity to Begin in Fall 2024

Does your religious faith add meaning and purpose to your life as a college student?

Do you want to help first year students with their religious and spiritual development?

Does your faith inspire you to support students from various religious traditions?

Campus Ministry, in collaboration with Residential Life, is initiating a new leadership opportunity for Assumption students in Fall 2024.
Resident Peer Ministers will cultivate a culture of faith within Assumption’s first year residential halls through a ministry of presence as they build relationships with the students among whom they live. This is an exciting way to support the newest Greyhounds in an important aspect of their Assumption education: the development of their spiritual life.

Find out more about this new opportunity for student leadership at an info session this Tuesday, January 23 at 5:30 PM in the Taylor Dining Hall Marriott Room. Pizza, drinks and cookies will be provided. Rising sophomores, juniors and seniors from all religious traditions are invited to attend!
