To accommodate our visitors on campus:

Thursday evening: If you are a resident in Lindner Tower, please park your vehicle towards the end of the parking lot, away from the entrance. Guests will be parking in the Lindner Tower lot and boarding a shuttle to take them to the Chapel. Another parking location for visitors coming to campus will be near the Fitness Center. 

Friday morning: Please leave the parking spaces by the Chapel, University Center, Administration Building and the Math and Science Building open for our guests who are attending the memorial service. 

Judson’s Memorial Will Be Held Monday, May 3
Judson University will honor the memories of both Dallas and Nathanael at a Memorial Service on Monday, May 3 at 10 a.m. in Herrick Chapel of Judson’s Elgin campus. More information about these services will be coming in future updates.


Grief Services Available This Week

Wellness Center: Will be open to any student who wants to talk. You do not need to call for an appointment. Simply stop into the Wellness Center and a counselor will be available to you. If you are unable to come to the Wellness Center, email and we will be available to speak with you by phone. 

Chapel: Will be open as a space for you to come and sit, reflect, pray with someone, and leave items near the memorial. Numerous churches have volunteered to take different days to staff the chapel from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. They’ll bring snacks, pray, and offer pastoral counseling to those who would like someone to process alongside.
