The placement office also provides ca reer counseling for students and placement informati on for graduating seniors and alumni seek­ ing ministry in fields of service to which they believe that the Lord has called them. The placement director along wi th the placement committee works closely with denominational and interdenomina­ tional Christian leaders. CAMPUS HOUSING & DINING Campus living quarters are available for single men and women. Until facilities are filled, they are assigned according to the date of re­ ceipt of the $50 housing deposit ($100 for apartment). More detailed information and housing request forms may be obtained from the director for residential programs, Metzger Hall, Biola University. This office can also provide some suggestions concerning off-campus rooms and apartments. Many off-campus students find it convenie nt to dine in the campus cafeteria. For those who wish to eat there regularly, some cost sav­ ings may be realized by using one of the meal ticket plans available rather than paying cash.
