A Place of Faith

Our commitment to Christian values, in educating both the heart and the mind, enhances our campus environment and our students' college experience. We believe that truth has nothing to fear from investigation, so we relentlessly pursue it in every discipline.

Convocation Series

From our University's founding, we have always had regular assemblies where we gather to grow in faith, hear engaging speakers, and learn more about how we can make a difference. The convocation series includes small and large weekly chapels and programs, small groups, and one-on-one mentoring.
