Welcome to Southern Seminary

There’s no better learning environment for theological education than what students experience on the campus of Southern Seminary.

For those who can't make the trip to Louisville to visit campus, we wanted to provide a taste of the on-campus experience.

Duke K. McCall Sesquicentennial Pavilion

This pavilion was opened on the occasion of the seminary's 150th anniversary. Duke K. McCall served as Southern's president from 1951 to 1982.

Alumni Memorial Chapel

Alumni Memorial Chapel was dedicated in 1950 as a replica of the historic First Baptist Church Atlanta. The chapel's pulpit has been filled by many influential Christian leaders like Martin Luther King Jr. and Billy Graham.

During the semester, the seminary community gathers for worship each Tuesday and Thursday at 10 a.m.

Norton Hall

Norton Hall is the academic hub of the seminary. It houses many classrooms and offices, including the President's Office.

Classrooms in Norton Hall

This is the biggest classroom on campus. Professors at Southern use a variety of teaching tools.

Seminary Lawn

At the center of campus, this lawn provides space for students to meet with one another, study in the sun, or play sports.

The Seminary Lawn is commonly referred to as "the J-Bowl," in honor of an urban legend that, after a particularly frustrating semester of reading for a New Testament course, A. T. Robertson's students buried their copies of the works of the first century historian Josephus.

Towery Plaza

Towery Plaza, built in 2011 on the north side of Norton Hall, is a welcoming patio for meeting or studying outside.
