Grace realizes that as a home away from home for many students, we have a responsibility to provide the services students need to equip them for success and excellence. From the various computer labs located around campus to extensive catalog and peaceful atmosphere of the Morgan Library to the student Learning Center in Indiana hall, Grace is determined to provide academic support for any student who seeks it. And for those who just need a stress-relieving study beak or want to maintain health and fitness, the student Recreation and Fitness center is available free of charge to all on and off-campus students. When students do become ill or injured, the nurse’s office is available to all students and is open throughout the school week. Finally, Grace offers several campus dining options, including Alpha Dining, open every day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, allowing students to grab a bite to eat and enjoy the company of fellow students.
Our Veteran’s Specialist, Robert Neufer, has 24 years of active duty military experience. He has been stationed or deployed around the world at bases in Afghanistan, Africa, Alabama, Alaska, California, Germany, Iraq, Jordan, Korea, New Jersey, and North Carolina. While still in the military, he leveraged Tuition Assistance to help pay for his Bachelor’s degree. After retiring from the Air Force in 2011, he earned a Master of Divinity at Grace Theological Seminary using his Post 9/11 GI Bill®. His job is to work with veterans, military members and eligible dependents to ensure they understand and are able to access their VA benefits. In addition to certifying students so that they receive their benefits, he is available for counseling on educational benefits and transition questions. His office is located in the Gordon Recreational Center in the Veteran Student Lounge. His office hours are Monday through Thursday, 8am to 5pm.
The Learning Center staff works with students to provide academic support in whatever area they need, aiming to provide quality learning assistance such as tutoring, writing help, disability services, and student accountability.
Each Grace student has access to the Gordon Recreation Center, which offers a full range of services to promote wellness and physical fitness. The facilities at the Rec Center include:
- A 4,000 square foot fitness center equipped with a 17-piece line of Cybex Eagle strength equipment, and a full range of free weight equipment. The cardio center offers CYBEX treadmills, ARC Trainers, stationary bikes, Precor Elliptical Crosstrainers, and four plasma TV screens with individual Cardio Theater sound stations.
- A 32,000 square-foot enclosed fieldhouse, offering four basketball courts, an 80-yard six lane straight track, a 1/10 mile four-lane indoor oval track, volleyball nets, and two batting cages.
- A 2,800 square foot aerobics room with wood floor and wall-mounted ballet bars.
- Men's and women's locker rooms with individual shower stalls and lockers for daily use or rental. Daily users need to supply and remove their own lock and contents from the locker each day. Semester renters pay a $20 fee and purchase a GRC combination lock for the year.
Students have access to the Morgan Library located on campus. The Morgan Library now contains more than 150,000 volumes which are classified in the Library of Congress classification system. Staffed with several full time librarians, the Morgan Library serves as the perfect place to discover research for whatever project you may need.
Grace offers free counseling services through the Health and Wellness Center, located on the first floor of Indiana Hall. The counseling staff desires to meet the unique needs of our veteran students and help them as they return to “civilian” life.
