Student Life

Student Life supports the mission of Southern Seminary by keeping students alert to their call to work hard for the kingdom while resting in Christ.
We call students to think carefully about worshipping the Lord Jesus Christ in every sphere of their lives.

Upcoming Events


Tues, Oct 18 | 7-9pm

During busy seasons of balancing school, work, relationships, and service to the church we can easily forget to stop and savor the gift of our daily life in Christ. Join us at our next Koinonia event, Life in Christ, as we consider what it means to abide in Christ (John 15:5). Come for fellowship and fall treats as we hear from faculty wives about how to draw near to Christ through daily spiritual disciplines and ministry opportunities.

Sample the World

Sat, Oct 29 | 6-8:30pm

Come and celebrate the cultural diversity we have on the campus of Southern Seminary while rejoicing in the one gospel that unites us all together.

Tickets are $1/dish and will be available in the Student Life Office beginning October 3, 2016. You may also purchase tickets the night of the event. All proceeds will go to short-term missions trips offered through the Bevin Center.


Sat, Nov 5 | 9am-2pm

For women in ministry, knowing how to study and teach God’s Word is vital. All female students and student wives are invited to join us in Legacy 303, as faculty wife Nora Allison teaches us how to study God’s Word, paying careful attention to the different genres of Scripture. This event is free for students and student wives, but preregistration is required. Register by October 20.

Prayer for the President

Wed, Nov 9 | Noon-1pm

On Tuesday, November 8, a new President of the United States of America will be elected. Regardless of political convictions, as believers in Christ, we are called to make “supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings…for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way” (1 Tim 2:1-2). Join us in Broadus Chapel as we fast and pray for our newly elected President.


The seminary community gathers to worship in Alumni Memorial Chapel on Tuesday and Thursday at 10 a.m. All offices will be closed during this time.
