Meet the Faculty You'll Study With

When you choose a seminary, you aren’t just choosing the buildings where you study, the library you’ll be using, or the city you’ll live in, instead you are choosing a faculty. Fall Festival visit day will give you the opportunity to meet faculty over meals and conversation, allowing you to get a taste of life as a student under on of the most widely-published faculty in theological education.

Learn How to Make Louisville Work

Whether you are a new student to SBTS, or new to main campus studies, we know you likely have lots of questions like: Where will we live? Where will we work? What’s here for our family? Rest assured, more than 2,000 students currently study on-campus, and Fall Festival visit day will connect you with many resources for housing, employment, and more to start your life in Louisville.

Experience the Southern Community

It’s called “Fall Festival” visit day for a reason! Prospective students and their families will end the day with complimentary tickets to the largest annual event at Southern Seminary: Fall Festival, where you’ll enjoy rides, food, and fireworks.
