What’s it like to move into Colburne?

Here’s a lovely letter from Zach Paget (2nd Year) to all you 1st year students moving into Colburne House!


Hey Colburne House Brothers and Sisters,

First of all, welcome to Crandall! I’m so glad you chose Crandall as the foundation for your careers and as another step of God’s pathway for your life! I am so excited to meet you all and officially welcome you into the Crandall family. Seeing as you are going to be moving into Colburne, I want you to know about a fraction of the awesomeness that is right around the corner. Moving into Colburne my first year was a rollercoaster of emotions for me. I wasn’t used to being away from home, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was also very excited about what was going to happen. On arrival, I was met by a crowd of smiles and helping hands of students, ranging from second to fourth year, helped me unpack my van and usher me to my room where I was free to start setting up my new home. What I thought was going to be an hour of unpacking and another hour of setting up was accomplished in fifteen minutes. To add to an already great start, I found myself in an amazing pod with four incredible guys. I had already known a couple of the guys, but the other two became instant friends as the first day began to roll on. One of the most incredible things about Colburne, and Crandall, is that friendships are made in an instant and a family is formed in the next instant. Another great thing about Colburne is that there is always something going on; whether that be movies, onesie dance parties, Papa John’s pizza night, games in the gym, RISK game night, worship, Bible times, or random things that you can’t even imagine until you experience it for the first time. Also, when you just need someone to talk to or be real with, you can go to beautiful people called RA’s who really care about what’s up in your life and want to be there for you. I’d also say that moving into Colburne is a sweet way to start your independence and see what it’s like to live on your own. I also missed my Mom nagging me to do homework because sometimes getting around to that would be difficult with all the fun going on #tbh #LoveYouMom. What I really liked about Colburne is that there is a really strong sense of freedom which gives you a lot of responsibility, but also adds to the adventure. After I had been settled in for a couple of days, I really started to love being in Colburne and all of my fears and concerns about school and being away from home were washed away because of the fun and the fellowship that happened in that place. So with all that out of the way…Get pumped! Make Colburne your home away from home! Do lots of stuff! Make lots of friends! Be a part of this family!

It’s a blessing to the school and to the Crandall family to have you be here with us. We love you and were so excited and happy for you all! God bless,

Zachariah Paget (a.k.a. 2nd year Biblical Studies Guy)
