Lawlor is located across the street from Printy Hall (our sister dorm) and kitty-corner from the Dixon Ministry Center. In Lawlor there are 288 open spots for residents, and it is a unit-style dorm. Lawlor is known for its strong community built from closer living and the unit style. Lawlor’s location is a great amenity, as is the easy access into the dorm. Our lounge is a great resource and has DirectTV, a pingpong table, foosball, and tables to read and study at.

Meet the RD
Hometown: I have lived in Beavercreek, OH for the better part of 10 years, but I definitely claim allegiance to Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
Hobbies: I'm an avid sports fan, and will watch or play anything. I also enjoy music, whether singing or playing an instrument, and spending time with friends.
Favorite Book: Pilgrim's Progress was largely impactful, but I also enjoyed Crazy Love by Francis Chan and Not a Fan by Kyle Idleman.
Favorite Place: I'm definitely partial to the pace of the city, so back to my roots would be Charlotte but I also love NYC!
Favorite Snack: Goldfish would be my go to, but whether or not I have that to snack on, I would much rather a glass of sweet tea in my hand than anything else.
Opportunities for Spiritual Growth
Our Resident Assistants (RAs) and Community Life Coordinators (CLCs) spend time with residents building intentional relationships and encouraging spiritual growth. Each RA and CLC work together as a duo to best lead the 30 guys that they are over. They are intentional in planning unit events, unit meetings, and then meeting together as a staff once a week (RAs together and CLCs together).
Lawlor is known for its many unique and fun events throughout the calendar year. Each year we begin the fall semester with Lawlor Palooza, which is an event that quickly breaks down any walls. This event kicks off the year perfectly with a bunch of high-energy guys getting to play some wild games. Also, each year we have a Gridiron event, which is one of the bigger ones on campus. This event is a giant 11-on-11 flag football game where we play against residents from The Hill. Our sister dorm also play in this massive game that happens early in November. Other events that we have throughout the school year include all-dorm dodgeball, a spiritual emphasis night called Lawlor Night, a trivia night, and a 3-on- 3 basketball tournament in April called Lawlor Baller. With that many events, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the community and life of Lawlor.
