Gross Participates In New Program June 22, 2017
Meg Gross of Marietta participated in the Bob Jones University's first Language Halls program during the 2016-17 academic year. Gross is a senior studying humanities.
Gross joined one of the Chinese-, French-, and Spanish-only discipleship groups in the BJU residence halls. She signed a language commitment in a ceremony last August, committing to maintain the language integrity of the group for the entire academic year in order to fully benefit from the experience.
The purpose of the voluntary program is to add the possibility of daily immersion to the experience of language students. BJU's Student Life and Discipleship organization places groups of students in residence hall discipleship groups according to the language they are studying. Group leaders and strategically placed native speakers help maintain a no-English zone in the language-specific halls. Though students should have a certain level of ability in their language, they do not have to be language majors or minors - or currently enrolled in a language course - in order to participate.
