C.W. Smith Hall (usually called “CDub”) is the newest dorm on campus. It was completed in Spring 2003 to alleviate the need for housing with a growing number of students having to live in off-campus rented apartments. In fact, students were moved mid-semester from the off-campus apartments - Oak Tree and Manzanita - into the newly finished dorm. Nearly the entire campus participated in the effort and accomplished the huge task in one afternoon.
Madi was born and raised in the smoky mountains of Western North Carolina where her family was involved in global missions. Since graduating from The Master’s University in 2018 with a B.A. in Liberal Studies, she has called southern California home. While in college Madi enjoyed living in Cdub her freshman year, competing in pole vault on the Women’s Track and Field team, learning about geography, Christ, and the Bible during a semester at IBEX, and serving as a Resident Assistant in Dixon. Madi loves camping at the beach or mountains, supporting Mustang sporting events, and serving alongside fellow believers in her local church. Madi is passionate about seeing students increase in their knowledge and love for the Savior by His grace and counts it a privilege to steward and serve the women of C.W. Smith Hall.
After high school, Sam enlisted in the Navy and spent the majority of his service stationed on board an aircraft carrier in Yokosuka, Japan. There he met his wife Natalie, who was also in the Navy. After he separated from active duty, they got married in 2015. He began his studies at TMU in 2016 and graduated with a B.A. in Political Studies in 2019. He and Natalie have two wonderful sons, David and James. Sam’s favorite Bible passage is Ephesians 2:4-9.
C.W. Smith Hall is a three-story building at the top of the hill above the rest of the dorms. The first floor has a spacious lounge furnished with couches, vending machines, an ice machine, a kitchenette, ping-pong, and pool tables. The second floor has a small lounge, a large laundry facility, and the men’s Resident Director apartment. The third floor is home to the women’s Resident Director apartment and has another large lounge, which is an ideal study space, with a beautiful view of the valley.
The dorm is divided into six wings, three women’s wings on the west side of the building, and three men’s wings on the east side separated by common areas. Each wing has a large central shower and restroom area and 13 or 14 rooms. Each room is fully furnished for two students including beds, built-in shelving, drawers, closet space, desks, and an individual heater/air-conditioner unit. The wings are normally referred to as “first,” “second,” or “third floor.” Because of its relatively recent construction, C.W. Smith is the only dorm with an elevator and is fully ADA-compliant.
Fun. Relaxed. Inviting.
Dinner in the Dub: Pancakes, pool, and ping pong are the perfect combination for a laid-back evening. Can it get much better than pancakes for dinner? This bi-weekly dorm fellowship is a time to relax, take a break from schoolwork and gather from 8:30 pm to 10:30 pm. Resident Directors encourage C-Dubers to make it a place where anyone from any dorm can come hang out and enjoy one another.
Feliz NaviDub: Candy canes, Christmas pinata, and syrup fill this event, along with white elephant gift exchanges and movies. This is an open-dorm-style event and thus a great excuse for everyone to festively decorate their rooms and spend some last-minute time together before finals the following week.
Black and White Party: Not all endings have to be lame. C-dub’s end-of-the-year party makes for a great opportunity to have a fun time with your dormmates at a beautiful venue and take great pictures. This party features exclusively black-and-white designs and outfits. It gives the dorm time to recognize and hand out awards for outstanding students, mostly comedically, while enjoying food and semi-formal wear.
