Students outdoors at Covenant College

 

Student Development

When students step onto campus, they discover a community of learning that extends beyond the classroom. Here are just a few examples of how the robust Covenant community encourages fellowship, learning, and following Jesus: events that engage with cultural ideas in a Christian manner - professors share meals with students - residence halls compete against each other in intramural sports - hall events range from pancake breakfasts to prayer and praise.

 

The Covenant College Community

Grounded in tradition and a time-tested theological heritage, the Covenant community extends far beyond your classmates. It includes faculty, staff, alumni, and board members who are eager to help you succeed. This thriving, joyful community shares core beliefs and a unifying love that stems from the gospel.

 


 

Watch as Associate Dean of Students Nesha Evans describes the transformative, relational community at Covenant:

 
"Covenant is a very special place, and I wholeheartedly do not believe there is another college campus that could match the community we have here. My time at Covenant has shaped my expectations by showing me the importance of having relationships that challenge and encourage me. My friends have pushed me to talk through hard topics and learn from other’s experiences...”

Center for Student Success

Visit the Center for Student Success for tutoring, personal advising, and tailored resources to help you succeed. We provide a safe place for students to work through academic and social challenges with the help of personal advisors who care about your academic success and spiritual growth.

 

Chapel

Chapel services are an important part of the holistic shaping and spiritual formation of Covenant students. Hearing teaching on the word of God informs our theology and shapes our hearts. Worshipping together unites us and draws our eyes to Jesus. God created believers to walk together, and chapel is one way we practice community three times each week.

 

Additionally, the Chapel Department comes alongside Student Development in mentoring and counseling students. Covenant is a safe place to ask hard questions. Followers of Christ often have doubts, faith questions, and sin struggles. Together, believers lift up each other and wrestle through questions, pointing each other to our Lord and Savior.
