Hundreds of Boyce College and SBTS Prospective Students Attend Preview Day, Meet Faculty
Southern Seminary welcomed a record-breaking 319 visitors for Boyce Preview Day, March 16–17. Prospective students and their families attended chapel, went to classes, and spent time engaging faculty.
Dustin Bruce, Dean of Boyce College, says the future looks bright for Boyce College—noting that the high attendance reveals a longing in today’s students for confessional Christian education.
“The opportunity to host the largest Preview Day in the history of Boyce College was a tangible reminder of all the prospective students and families who resonate with the conservative, confessional, Christian education Boyce College provides,” Bruce said.
Bruce cast the vision of Boyce College and Preview Day by pointing to three distinctives: an education from a Christian worldview, a focus on discipleship, and a push for students to engage with God's mission.
“We want students and their families to get a glimpse of what life is like at Boyce College and are excited to communicate to them what makes Boyce distinct,” Bruce said. “Christ is supreme over all things—this is the truth that guides everything at Boyce College. We want a college experience that only makes sense if Christ has been raised. I love seeing future Boyce College students light up as we communicate our distinct commitment to biblical worldview education, fostering discipleship, and encouraging mission.”
Southern Seminary prospective students from 25 states and 3 countries arrived in Louisville to experience campus life and meet the faculty on April 21. Attendees toured campus, learned about admissions and financial aid, and spent extensive time with faculty members.
SBTS and Boyce College President Albert Mohler remains committed to Christian education amidst a secularizing world. Mohler believes the current and future students of Boyce College and Southern Seminary are the type of leaders the church and world desperately need to contend for biblical truth.
“It is an exciting time to be a Christian college and seminary,” Mohler said. “Boyce College and Southern Seminary are to assist this generation in not being conformed to the world. Transformation and the renewing of the mind comes by education based on the Word of God in order that this generation of Christians will be faithful in an increasingly hostile world. It’s the right time for this generation of Christian leaders to arrive on the scene and bring glory to God’s name.”
