ALIVE Apprentices

What Do Apprentices Do?
ALIVE apprentices are matched up with an upperclass mentor and assist in planning and running programs for the residence hall in which they live. 

Many programs, especially in the beginning of the year, are social in nature and are meant to build community within the hall and on campus. They provide welcoming spaces of belonging and connect students from a variety of backgrounds, faith traditions, and places in their spiritual development. As connections form, students engage in meaningful conversations while having a lot of fun together.  Learn more about the ALIVE Team and check out examples of ALIVE programs currently going on in the halls.

Students currently live and serve in Bergstrom, Madelaine/Lorraine, and Sensenbrenner Halls.
