Student Life

You’re more than part of a close-knit, diverse community — you’re part of the family. After all, your academic, spiritual and personal growth is interwoven into your student experience.

With over 100 different student organizations focused on spiritual growth, social issues, academic pursuits, athletic endeavors and a wide variety of other special interests, prepare to connect, grow and flourish.

So show your Bison spirit. Get involved in special events, clubs and activities on campus. Join a service group, volunteer in Nashville or share a foreign language. Learning here will transform and challenge you, academically and spiritually. Let us help you nurture your soul, find community and help you discover who you’re called to be.

Live and flourish.

Find your niche.

"The SAC" is more than 20,000 square feet of sports and exercise facilities open to students, faculty, staff and the community. Our students, faculty and staff are given free memberships and can enjoy any of the space and equipment. The SAC features weight rooms, basketball and racquetball courts, a spinning studio, a performance studio, an indoor track and locker rooms.

Embrace your life.

You can get involved with student-led groups, Greek Life, SGA, professionally-driven organizations — or by starting your own club. Create your own club or team. Or join an existing team playing sports including kickball, ultimate Frisbee, softball, tennis, football, racquetball, volleyball and basketball.

Eat, study, chill.

If Bison Square is the heart of campus, Bennett Campus Center is the soul. This is where you'll relax, eat, study and chill. Inside you'll find Bison Cafe, the food court, Starbucks, The Connection, TV areas, conference rooms and our bookstore. Entertainment is never far away with Shamblin Theatre and Flatt Amphitheater, both home to performances, meetings, debates and other special events. Bennett is also home to our Student Life offices, so feel free to stop by and say hello.
