LAMONI — Graceland offers a unique system that merges student government and the housing system.

Each floor of the residence halls is designated as a “house” with its own name, symbol and colors.

The integration of student government and the houses allows student leaders to impact the entire campus community and to plan and run programs for the house. This is accomplished by house council leaders becoming the members and decision makers in the student government organizations.?

The following local students were elected to the Graceland University 2014-15 House Council.

Jayce Finnell of Truro was elected as Campus Organization for Social Activities Representative for Orion house.

Caitlin Weeks of New Virginia was elected as Intramurals Representative for Dimora house.

Students participating in leadership and service programs at Graceland University engage in a journey toward personal growth, social responsibility and building community by recognizing leadership potential and clarifying personal, academic and professional goals.

Graceland University, founded in 1895, creates learning communities where students develop their potential for meaningful, productive lives.

Offering residential and non-residential environments, Graceland boasts more than 50 academic majors and programs and over 50 clubs and organizations.
