RSP students are expected to live as disciples of Christ and exemplify kindness, faithfulness and integrity in their relationships with each other and with Romanians.
Students are expected to live simply and modestly, and to show sensitivity and respect for Romanian cultural norms as far as these do not conflict with Christian values.
Dating relationships are discouraged, and extramarital sexual activity will not be tolerated. Use of illegal drugs is forbidden and the use of tobacco and alcohol strongly discouraged. As students remain enrolled in their own schools while in Romania, they are expected to abide by their own school’s policy on alcohol.
Students are expected to avoid bars, discotheques, casinos, and other places of unhealthy entertainment. Many Romanians who consider themselves Christians would refrain from frequenting these types of places because it infers a worldly lifestyle instead of a godly one.
Students are encouraged to become part of a church congregation while they are in Sighisoara, but should also visit other churches during their semester to better understand how other denominations and ethnic groups worship.
