A successful Bryan experience is shaped by the learning opportunities both in and out of the classroom. Staff and faculty are committed to maximizing those opportunities by providing services that will promote and enhance overall health and wellness of each student as well as that of the college community.
Health & Wellness
Residence Life Staff
A resident director lives in each resident hall to give guidance and oversight within the richness of living in the Bryan community. Resident directors serve students by providing advice, wise counsel, and accountability. The residence life staff seeks to identify students’ needs, facilitate healthy student relationships and promote individual growth.
Counseling & Soul Care
Occasionally a student will face personal or life issues that call for more involved assistance. The counseling staff is here to provide individual counseling, support groups, and referrals. Soul care is a holistic approach to helping others find healing and restoration, with a particular emphasis on the interior life. To set an appointment for counseling with the Bryan College Counseling Services fill out this Inquiry for Counseling form.
Mentoring @ Bryan
Mentoring @ Bryan is an intentional part of the Christian formation philosophy of Bryan College. Through this ministry, current Bryan students can request to have a faculty or staff member serve as his or her mentor. What this mentor/mentee relationship looks like varies from each mentoring relationship, based upon the spiritual needs of the student.
