The 1892 Club provides a dedicated space and time to develop relationships and mentoring within our PhD community through a formal program and open times for fellowship. It is open to all current PhD students at SBTS, across all schools, departments, and stages of the program, in addition to all professors. If you are in one of these groups, you’re already a member of The 1892 Club!
The 1892 Club meets most Wednesday afternoons during term time. It consists of two elements, which are on either side of the PhD Colloquia:
The main focus of the Club, an opportunity to hear from various professors, visiting scholars, students, and others about topics relevant to our PhD community (Library – Lower Level)
An open, non-planned, drop-in fellowship time for conversation between students and faculty (Library, Lower Level)

The Doctoral Common Room is a dedicated space on the third floor of the SBTS Library for our doctoral students to foster community, mentoring, inter-disciplinary conversations, and more.
The Doctoral Common Room is a room dedicated solely to Southern Seminary’s doctoral students. The room is located on the third floor of the Library and can be accessed using the code provided by the Research and Professional Doctoral Studies Offices. The Office of Doctoral Studies invites all Ph.D., Ed.D., D.Miss., D.Min., and D.Ed.Min students to use the room whenever the Library is open. We only ask that students abide by the posted guidelines.
Every weekday (except Wednesday) at 2:30 pm, the Office of Doctoral Studies provides coffee for a time of fellowship and inter-disciplinary conversation. All doctoral students may attend.

Housh Talks is the annual presentation competition for current PhD students. Students will give a 5-6 minute presentation on a topic of their research with 4 minutes for question and answers. The presentations are judged by members of the faculty at Southern and the students of the program. Presentations can be summations of seminar papers or original research.
The student with the highest scored presentation will receive a travel stipend to the national ETS or SBL conference in the following semester.
Current students may submit a proposal for the contest. Only a number of proposals will be chosen for the contest. Applications are due October 9th.
