Welcome to Southern Adventist University!

People tell me that Southern is a special place and they can tell the difference immediately. We have a distinctly spiritual environment.

Our students create this special environment. Many go a step further than just the requirements, connecting in spontaneous groups for prayer and Bible study, leading out in ministry and community service events, and participating as student missionaries and task force workers.

Another difference at Southern is that our professors enjoy personally helping students. With small class sizes, our professors can advise and mentor students and build relationships, both in and out of the classroom.

That's why we use the tagline "Power for Mind and Soul." There's power here to connect to a Higher Power, power to prepare for a life career, and power to mingle with students and professors who share a welcoming Christian faith.

Come visit our campus and experience what's special and different at Southern for yourself.

In Christ,

Gordon Bietz
