the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

Student Life

The purpose of Student Life at Southern

is to encourage, equip, and care for the students of Southern Seminary outside the classroom. We accomplish this purpose by providing opportunities for students to develop as gospel laborers, engage the seminary community, and invest in the lives of others during their time here. We also provide help and care alongside students’ local churches in times of crisis.
