Residence Life

Romero Learning Community

"This is what we are about: we plant seeds that one day will grow.  We water seeds already planted, knowing that they hold future promise.  We lay foundations that will need future development.  It may be incomplete, but it is a beginning, a step along the way, an opportunity for God's grace to enter and do the rest."

Designed as an intentional living community, the Romero RLC is as ideal living environment for students interested in community service, social justice and advocacy work.  Romero members will participate in service opportunities throughout the Philadelphia area and will benefit from unique programs designed to introduce students to complex social issues.  Students will have the opportunity to interact with SJU faculty and staff as well as local non-profit agencies and service sites as they explore the process of social service and change.  Residents host reflection dinners and discussions in addition to experiential programming.  Students will be able to examine careers in social service and will learn how to infuse social justice into their lives no matter what career they ultimately choose.  The Romero RLC is located in Saint Mary's Hall
