Student Life


Entertain the possibilities – prepare to contribute to your career, community and church after graduation through a multitude of opportunities to participate in the life of campus.

Jump in and engage your interests in student-run clubs and organizations, spiritual life activities and limitless leadership opportunities – through the Student Government Association (SGA) and Student Activities Council (SAC).

Participate in the life of the community – on or off-campus – through service programs and internships, making your world and your resume better.

Expend extra energy as a part of a varsity or intramural athletic team. Audition for the nationally recognized forensics team. Perform in one of the outstanding instrumental or vocal music groups or on the stage in yearly drama and music theater productions – they aren’t just for music majors.

Get to know people and get the most from your college experience. With plenty of things to do and countless ways to get involved, you'll always be engaged.
