SFBC&TS Student Life personnel assist with the transition to college life by helping students gain the most from their college experience.  Detailed information is available about the various programs from the Student Life Office or by consulting the SFBC&TS Student Manual.  A brief summary of some of the activities, services, and requirements students may expect are described below.

Student Council

The SFBC&TS Student Council enjoys a reputation as a concerned and effective group of student leaders committed to enhancing the quality of campus life.  Council members formulate proposals to change policies governing student life, gain valuable experience working with a constitutional organization, and sponsor significant services and programs each year.

Organizations/Clubs

Students are encouraged to form special clubs around particular interests.  Normally, these organizations are requested by students and function with the advisement of a faculty or staff sponsor. 

Social Life

SFBC&TS students have the opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of recreational, entertainment, and sightseeing activities.  South Florida abounds with famous tourist attractions and natural beauty that make this area the numbers one vacation destination.

The area also offers many other cultural opportunities including art galleries, parks, museums, and professional sporting events.  Swimming, deep-sea fishing, snorkeling, diving, and boating are great leisure activities available to those who live in the area surrounding SFBC&TS. 

Students at SFBC&TS develop strong relationships with college staff and faculty.  Employees of the college make themselves available in a wide array of Student Life activities.

Medical Information

The College is committed to making every reasonable effort to provide students with a healthy learning and living environment.  The college community has access to emergency and general medical physicians in close proximity to the campus.  The Student Life Office has personnel that are available to assist in directing students toward medical care and to provide transportation if necessary.

South Florida Bible College is a community of students, faculty, staff, and administration who are joined together for the purposes of academic enrichment, personal development, spiritual growth, and preparation for Christian ministry.  Relationships and responsibilities in this community are built upon: (1) the teachings and principles of the inerrant and authoritative Word of God (2 Tim. 3:16,17), (2) the personal accountability of each member to a loving and sovereign God (1 Peter 1:17), and (3) the inner resources and attributes of the Holy Spirit to guide and minister to each other in all relationships (John 16:13,14).

Members of the South Florida Bible College community should seek first and foremost to achieve the goal of 1 Corinthians 10:31, “Whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”  All activities and relationships should seek to accomplish this ultimate objective.

Counseling Services

Students encountering personal difficulties are encouraged to talk with someone who is qualified to help.  Confidential short-term counseling is available from Student Life staff and faculty. Counseling interns are also available for longer term counseling. Notices on the bulletin boards give you information on how to contact these people directly regarding:

·         Referrals to local Christian counselors or groups

·         Premarital or engagement counseling

·         Financial aid for professional counseling

·         Contact information will be available online and around Campus by mid-September.

·         Career Services

 

Career Services are available in the Student Life office and include resources for resume writing, and interview skills, as well as other colleges. For help or questions about career services contact the Director of Field Education and/or the Student Life Office.

Housing

Because SFBC&TS’ students are either commuters or distance learners, housing is not provided.  However, on request, SFBC&TS will provide assistance to students in locating suitable housing.
