New Student Orientation

Friday, January 17, 2014

Welcome to Southern Seminary! Orientation will lay the foundation for your time at SBTS and give you a smooth start. Orientation is required of new students (on-campus M.A. and M. Div. students) and you must register online. If you are living in a dormitory on campus (not on campus apartment), you can check in at the Pavilion at 8:00 AM with Housing to get your room key. Orientation will start at 9:15 AM and end at 2:15 PM. Lunch is provided. Later in the evening, we will have a hot chocolate social in the Pavilion. To register children for free childcare, please register here.
