With dorms.

And preferably be on the west coast or middle America instead of all of them being on the east coast.


I know that there is a seminary in Kodiak Alaska, but it would be nice to attend an undergraduate Orthodox Theology College where I could attend Divine Liturgy during the week.

If I'm not mistaken Holy Cross and St. Sophia are the only ones available.

You mean like Saint Katherine University?

I called them to ask if they had dorms for married people, but they said that they didn't.   :(

Do they have Greek fraternities?

Curious why having a dorm is important to you if you're married?

To live on campus and eat at the cafeteria etc.

Don't have to stress about where to live while in school.

Also, I would like it to be specifically for Theology. That way there would be more Divine Liturgies during the week and living on campus would make it easier to attend Divine Liturgy and be fully immersed in study.

Cooking for yourself will always be cheaper than any meal plan.

I suspect it's not about the cost, but about the convenience - i.e. if you don't have to shop & cook, that leaves more time for study, prayer, and quality interaction with one's spouse and schoolmates.

But yes, the board costs will always be more expensive than if you were cooking for yourself.
For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, & godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope & glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed & purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.  Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. (Titus 2:11-15)

Yes, exactly this.

One less thing to worry about.

Jordanville has a couple of undergraduate programs: http://www.hts.edu

The previous incumbent of this account studies there and told me that there are places for families to live, but not the dorms.

Cool, thanks for telling me about this.
