Johnson Residence Hall
Johnson Hall is a hub for growth, hearty laughter, and most importantly, stimulating conversation between young men pursuing God’s call. The building is situated in close proximity with the rest of Asbury’s campus to encourage the full liberal arts experience. The Residence Life staff led by the Resident Director works to create environments suited for uplifting relationships. The goal in residence life is to foster halls for residents to discover their new home.
Johnson is well equipped with a kitchen and two lobbies, along with a newly renovated basement with a study room, laundry room, and prayer room. Each hall averages 15 rooms with a combination of double and single units. The rooms share convienient community bathrooms.
Throughout the academic year, several organized activities take place to bring residents together in a larger setting. In many cases the residence staff tries to invite speakers and faculty members to generate discussion revolving around topics discussed in chapel. During the “Faith and Relationships” chapel series, the men of Johnson gathered in the lobby to hear from respected faculty members and ask questions regarding Godly relationships.
The Johnson staff also enjoys putting on holiday/seasonal-themed events. These include ‘Shocktoberfest,’ a fall carnival style occasion, and ‘the Johnson Hall Christmas Party,’ an unmatched Christmas extravaganza.
Stop by Johnson and expect smiles, handshakes, and hugs.
