New Student Orientation

Friday, August 15, 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 for the “class” we have inside Moodle, and then register your entire party at Eventbrite. 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 an Ice Cream Social on the Towery Plaza. To register children for free childcare, please register here.

Boyce College students attend a separate Boyce Orientation program.
