The Baptist Collegiate Ministry (BCM), affiliated with the Georgia Baptist Convention Collegiate Ministries Department, involves students in a program of Christian growth and service. The goal is that students might develop into people of integrity with a meaningful faith, strong character and high morals. The Baptist Collegiate Ministry promotes devotion to God and service, and members participate in meetings and activities that provide opportunities for worship, Bible study, fellowship, speakers, discussion, social life, witness, missions and ministry. BCM members sing, organize activities, pray, plan mission trips and help one another in their Christian walk of faith.
The Catholic Student Association serves the campus community and offers opportunities to make long-lasting friendships, participate in community service projects and worship together. The organization helps students meet the unique challenges present in a college setting by experiencing the support of a caring community.
