Since its formation in 1967, the Student Association (SA) has become an essential means of fostering unity and fellowship among the student body. SA has close ties with the administration, nominating members for standing committees of the school and making recommendations concerning policy. In addition to planning chapel devotionals and initiating various student activities, the SA sponsors the annual W.B. West Jr. Lectures for the Advancement of Christian Scholarship each fall and six academic awards at graduation. The six awards are: the M.Div. Academic Award, the M.A. Academic Award, the M.A.C.M. Academic Award, the Jack P. Lewis Ministry of Study Award, the Hebrew Award and the Velma R. West Greek Award. The SA publishes a student newsletter and coordinates informal athletic activities throughout the year. The SA also hosts banquets, devotionals, picnics and campus movies.
