Life on Campus

  • Three people sitting in a circle discussion
    Visitors from Service Space talk about Meaningful Work
  • Two men pour tea
    Three Treasures Tea Club
  • Student gets instruction from teacher on how to hold a calligraphy brush
    Calligraphy instruction in the Chinese Speaking Club

Students are busy attending classes, writing papers, and doing service scholarship work, but they still find time to participate in a wide variety of activities occurring on and off campus. So far this semester, they could choose from the following list:

  • A panel on Meaningful Work presented by visitors from Service Space
  • A workshop on Creating Comics from Classical Texts
  • A Sunday morning hike to Wonderful Enlightenment Mountain followed by brunch
  • A lecture on Jesuit Practice of Contemplatives in Action
  • A showing of the documentary film The Century of the Self
  • A Friday board games night

In addition to these special events, there are weekly opportunities to participate in student clubs, including the Three Treasures Tea Club, Chinese Speaking Club, Interfaith Club, Knitting Club, the newly formed Spanish Club and Ten Thousand Hands Art Club, and the DRBU Choir. Finally, there are opportunities to pursue contemplative practices through the DRBU Self-Cultivation series, which provides regular practice periods, check-ins, informal gatherings, and daylong practice sessions. In the words of one student, “This place is everything I imagined it would be and better.”
