Medians (Over 21)

YAs opening circleThe Median program was created as an age-inclusive extension of the Young Adult program. It is a space for people ages 21 and up who root their SUUSI experience in fellowship and shared experiences. It provides more extensive programming for adults and a sub-community where deeper relationships can be formed. 

The Median program is inclusive, but limited to people who are willing to commit to creating an intentional community together. You can indicate your intentions by signing up to live in Median housing or by registering for the Median program as a workshop. You will then receive an email about a mandatory town hall meeting that will open the week. Participation in Median-only spaces, social events, workshops, and worship services will be limited to people who have registered for the program.

Activities

There may be workshops and nature trips that are tagged as Median-led or Median-friendly. Median-led workshops are led by self-identified members of the Median community and are open to all SUUSI participants. Medians are encouraged to plan ahead and register for the same workshops and nature trips, so that we can participate together. We also have less formal activities including games, relationship building, and worship. A lot of programming goes late into the night to accommodate the many Medians who are night owls. When you arrive at Check-In, stop by the Median table and see all we have to offer, or suggest an activity that you’d like to make happen.

Housing

Medians will have their own section of an adult SUUSI dorm, near but separate from Young Adult housing. If you want to live in the Median space on campus, be certain to indicate Median housing when registering. If you cannot live in the Median space (for example, if you have a child), you may still participate in the Median program by registering for it as a workshop.

Online Connections

The SUUSI Median community is active year-round on Facebook, with a closed group specifically for registered Medians or YAs only. If you would like to be invited, please email medians@suusi.org.

We also have a mailing list, which is the best way to find out important info. To sign up, go to: bit.ly/SUUSIMedianMail or just email medians@suusi.org.

  • 1041: Mandatory Median Town HallLimit 300

    This town hall will be mandatory for all those participating in the Median even if they are not living in the Median dorm. At this town hall we will discuss community expectations so it is very important that everyone attend and affirm the community covenant that is developed at this meeting. It is best to attend the town hall in person, but reasonable accommodations will be made for those who cannot be there. If you are not able to be there in person it is your responsibility to reach out to the Median director to discuss your individual circumstances.
