Living in Community
Fellowship and community are important for people of all ages. Southern offers more than 80 student-led LifeGroups that encourage meaningful connection in college and beyond. In fact, some participants use and expand on that model after graduation. To learn more about Southern's LifeGroups program, visit southern.edu/belong.

Change and Growth: Celebrating 130 Years
Much has happened in Southern’s 130-year-history. What began as a small country school has expanded beyond what the founders could have imagined, as God has continued to bless.

For more of Southern's history, download the book A Century of Challenge by former history professor Dennis Pettibone from McKee Library's webpage, here.

Missionaries for Life
Dedication, personal sacrifice, and a passion to serve are just a few characteristics that set apart this alumni couple, exemplifying Southern’s long tradition of serving others.

Homecoming Weekend
Once again, more than 700 Southern alumni and friends from across the country came together to reconnect and fellowship during Homecoming Weekend. Returning to a pre-pandemic format, the weekend included many favorite events, such as the Ladies’ Luncheon, honor class reunions, golf tournament, academic open houses, and much more. Additionally, participants enjoyed new activities, such as a guided hike on the Sabbath Trail and hearing students share their mission testimonies during Sabbath School.
