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 activities, events, and student organizations that provide a platform for students to connect, learn, and engage. We also provide help and care alongside students’ local churches in times of crisis. For Student Life updates, follow us on Twitter at @SBTSStudentLife
