Summit Living Community
Summit Living is a holistic wellness community in which all aspects of one’s mental, physical, and spiritual health are supported. Summit Living is also a drug and alcohol-free community, and is composed of a supportive group of like-minded individuals with a drive to succeed at the Mount. This living area is meant to be more than just a place where students live, but also a place where students are educated and can find growth in whatever way they so choose. Summit Living residents are mature individuals who aim to take on leadership roles on campus and in the greater community. Each year, Summit Living continues to develop close-knit communities that offer many different fun hall activities, contests, and interesting volunteer opportunities.
