Museum Docents Bring the Bible to Life
Southern is the only Adventist university in America that employs current students as docents in an archaeological museum, creating unique opportunities for a variety of majors on campus. Learning more about evidence for biblical history and sharing insights with guests broadens both the academic paths and faith journeys of these undergraduates.

A Growing Campus
Founded in 1892, Southern Adventist University strives to offer an exceptional, wholistic learning experience for students. During the past 15 years, Southern’s campus has grown and changed. And yet, the exceptional experience Southern offers has remained the same—an experience grounded in Christ, focused on academic excellence, and filled with Spirit-led service.

How Have You Seen God?
We asked and campus answered: How have you seen God show up in your life this year?

Homecoming 2023
Southern welcomed more than 850 guests to Homecoming Weekend on October 26-29. Approximately 50 events were held, including a wide variety of activities across Southern’s campus such as hikes on the Sabbath Trail, the Erhard Patio Cookout and Dedication, several new workshops, and honor class reunions.

Friendships Amongst the Fjords
An atmosphere of growing friendships and supportive connections is part of what makes Southern Adventist University a special place. Even after graduation, alumni and friends of Southern can still share experiences together through events such as the Alumni Association Tour each year.
