Vibrant community united in faith

Our student body of about 1,900 possesses a tremendous amount of talent that is channeled through various avenues across campus. Music groups, Bible studies, and themed 5Ks are only a few of what students have organized over the years.

  • Chapel where, even though attendance isn’t monitored, three times a week, Taylor students fill the seats.
  • Traditions running the gamut from lip-syncing/dance contests to bike races where the rider changes but the bike never stops.
  • Residence halls rooming freshmen through seniors on the same floors and wings, enabling mentor-like relationships among students.
