About SBU Students
There are approximately 3,600 students, including approximately 817 graduate students, attending classes at SBU on its four campuses. More than 1,570 undergraduate students attend classes at the Bolivar campus with approximately 1,000 undergraduate students taking classes at the off-campus sites.
SBU students are free to express Christian faith and values in the classroom, where they are challenged to pursue academic excellence. Students deepen their faith by living, studying, praying, and playing with students from all walks of life and at all stages in their spiritual journey.
At SBU there are many opportunities to grow as a Christian while exploring interests on and off campus. SBU students go on mission trips, study abroad, travel to academic contests and sporting events, go on musical tours, attend campus Bible studies and Chapel services, or serve in the local community.
SBU students also participate in several academic and extra-curricular organizations including: PBL, SA, SBU Chorale, Alpha Chi, MENC and Debate.
