Canton, GA

 

Favorite class taken at Covenant

A solid tie between Teaching in a Pluralistic Society & Doctrine with Dr. Madueme

 

What the residents on my hall can expect

My overarching goal for the hall is for it to be a place of rest from the business of school and life - for you to grow in all aspects of your personhood, but most importantly your faith, through relationships and activities on the hall. I pray you will form friendships while celebrating goodness and grieving hardships, embrace traditions and establish new ones, and just straight up have fun and laugh hard.

 

What I'm all about

Running. Hiking. Futbol. Tennis. Country music. Kids. I love kids. Tea not coffee. Finding all the ways I can show people y'all are beautifully and wonderfully made and forever loved.

Business and Economics

 

Hometown

Bristol, TN

 

Favorite class taken at Covenant and why

Principles of Management with Professor Quatro. This class allowed me to view the big picture in business and it helped me realize that running a business is not all about making the big bucks.

 

What the residents on my hall can expect

They should expect lots of laughs and a tight community of girls who will love and uplift one another.

 

What I'm all about

I am all about relationships. I love to form new friendships, find similarities and differences, and ultimately seek to see Christ in each individual I encounter. Forming friendships and growing closer to the Lord individually and as a community is what I value!

Doctrine II with Dr. Madueme

 

What the residents on my hall can expect

I hope to build a community where we honor everyone, learn how to love the brotherhood, and understand how to fear God and honor authority - 1 Peter 2:17.

 

What I'm all about

Adventure, Photography, Sports, and the Outdoors

Philosophy

 

Hometown

Kent Island, MD

 

Favorite class taken at Covenant and why

Bioethics

 

What the residents on my hall can expect

Quality friendships and spiritually-invested community. Borderlands has traditionally been a tight-knit and laid-back hall that loves music and good discussion. Aside from this, we will have to see what the year holds for us!

 

What I'm all about

Reflective conversation, peppermint tea, analyzing movies, weightlifting, going on adventures, learning from others, sleeping in, eating rum raisin ice cream, anything related to Batman, late-night baking, praying with friends, intercultural experiences, excellent stonework, reading poetry, and candle-shopping.

Character in Leadership

 

What the residents on my hall can expect

If you live on The Gentlemen’s Hall, you can expect bowties, the Pretentious Putt-Putt hall date, buckets and buckets of classiness, beating 2nd Central in the annual softball tournament with copious amounts of sprezzatura, and some more classiness. More importantly, you can, by God’s grace alone, expect a bunch of broken brothers who haven’t figured everything out yet but who will point you to Him who has done everything for us.

 

What I'm all about

I like good conversations over a hot cup of Earl Grey, running (with or without shoes), hanging out with my family, and quoting Pixar films. So a pretty excellent day would look like me and my barefooted family running through the woods while sipping Earl Grey and saying “We get there when we get there!” (This has yet to happen, and I think I would actually feel a little uncomfortable if it did.) Though all these things are great and wonderful, they are gifts from God, and I hope that He will make me more and more about Him and that I would seek Him more, rest in Him more, and tell others about Him and His love through Christ more. Apart from Him I have no good thing (Psalm 16:2).

Introduction to Philosophy with Dr. Davis

 

What the residents on my hall can expect

You can expect a close-knit group of girls who will become like sisters as we get to live life and seek Christ together. Also 3C is a bunch of fun. #3C4lyfe

 

What I'm all about

Wow--lots of stuff. Dancing, coffee, tea, Lord of the Rings, movie marathons, all-nighters, reading, watching documentaries, Coldplay, Shakira & Beyoncé, Emmie Thompson (shoutout DC), and purple. Yep.

Economics and Philosophy

 

Hometown

Tuscaloosa, AL

 

Favorite class taken at Covenant and why

It's a tie between Principles of Microeconomics and Principles of Macroeconomics. In both, I saw the marriage of abstract principles and individual's lives, of math equations and people's ability to flourish. I left the classroom each day impassioned and raving "I LOVE ECONOMICS!"

 

What the residents on my hall can expect

Third North is a home - a place to laugh together, cry together, pray together, dance together, praise together, drink coffee together, blast music together, be broken and redeemed together, live life in Christ together.

 

What I'm all about

Walks + conversations (the best are often after midnight), loud music (the louder the better), thrift-shopping (my sport of choice), chick flicks (Hallmark movies are my guilty pleasure), sleeping under the stars (preferably, but not necessarily, when above freezing), laughing (a lot), and reveling in the boundless grace, mercy, and love of Christ lavished on us.

Favorite class taken at Covenant and why

My favorite class that I’ve taken at Covenant thus far would probably be Teaching in a Pluralistic Society. TIPS has exposed me to a lot of the brokenness of our society but within the context of Christian hope and love. It has given me more compassion and desire to love those whom Jesus calls my neighbors. This class has equipped me to better love others so, whether or not I become a teacher, I will always be grateful for what I learned in TIPS.

 

What the residents on my hall can expect

Residents on Fourth South can expect a community of women who love Jesus, each other, laughter, food, dancing, sloths, and having a good time. Expect adventure and fun, support and encouragement, and a safe place to struggle through brokenness and rejoice in goodness.

 

What I'm all about

Jesus. God’s creation. Grace upon grace upon grace. Joy. Adventures. Food. People. Books. Harry Potter. The ocean (long walks on the beach included). Dancing. Laughing. Embracing the awkward. Sloths and cats. Growing. Learning. Flowers.

History

Favorite class taken at Covenant and why

Intro to History with Dr. Green

 

What the residents on my hall can expect

A tightly knit group of brothers seeking Christ and building community through super fun events and everyday encouragement. It's also just really fun. Like really fun. We do fun crazy stuff.

 

What I'm all about

I'm all about a lot. I'm all about Jesus. I'm all about music. Good music, though - not lame music. And I'm all about soccer. And I'm all about the cold side of a pillow and riding in anything that rolls down a hill like a laundry cart or luggage cart.

 

“Covenant’s hall life allows you to be involved in something that is bigger than yourself. You will never have an opportunity to live with 30 guys your age and share your life, struggles, and joys together. It’s a beautiful thing that reflects God’s work in our lives.”
 - Ben Hooper '17

“I love, love, love my hall! I met these girls my first week of school and each of them have had a continuing impact on my life in various ways throughout this year. My particular hall this year had a really cool range of ages and majors... This group of girls (most of them returners to the hall) have welcomed me in since day one and have made me feel so loved and included.”
