A Message of Solidarity from the Director of Student Activities and Campus Life on Reflection and Prayer Room




Hi CoA Community,

The purpose of the COA reflection and prayer room is to serve as an open and safe space for students to engage in reflection, meditation and prayers. We believe this room connects with our college’s mission to serve the educational needs of our diverse community by providing comprehensive and flexible programs and resources that empower students to achieve their goals. This room is located in the Student Center (F Building), F122 near the elevator. Please share this with all students.

In addition to the reflection & prayer room, students have asked for more space for prayer so we are opening F-107 in the Student Center from Monday – Thursday, 12:00noon – 2:00pm to accommodate the increase of students desiring to pray.
