Community matters.

Prepare for a full calendar of opportunities that will become integrated components of your college years. Invest in global initiatives to end malaria. Connect with friends over Late Night breakfast at the start of finals week. And enjoy a cup of coffee with President Stowell.

Ready for a sneak peek? Watch the video below for a preview of student life here.


  • First-Year Orientation — Terra Firma lasts the duration of your first year on campus, proving to be a foundational class as you become familiarized with the rhythms of student life, opportunities for involvement, and prepare to maximize each of your college years.
  • Spiritual Life — Beyond chapel gatherings held each week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, you'll join fellow students for small group studies, participate in Evensong worship services on Sunday nights, and extend conversations with speakers during breakout sessions scheduled with select presenters and authors each semester...such as Lopez Lomong, U.S. Olympic athlete and author of Running for My Life.
  • Global Opportunities — The Student Development team coordinates Global Opportunities that range in length from a few weeks to the entirety of a semester. Serve and study off campus in community with other Cornerstone students, reshaping your perspective and extending your understanding of academics well outside the walls of a traditional classroom.
  • Athletic Teams — Both on the field and off, Night of Nets unites athletes and spectators behind a shared goal to end malaria, collecting event admission costs to purchase insecticide-treated bed nets for families living in Zambia and other locations around the world. In addition, we maintain rosters and schedules for intramural games and matches on campus.
  • Student Activities — The Student Activities Board maintained by the Student Development team will keep your calendar full. Picture Mega Twister on an oversized gameboard, pumpkin smashing on the hill by Quincer Hall at the annual Fall Smash, flag football on a muddy field, a marathon session of Mario Kart, and throwbacks to melodies still available on vinyl during Mock Rock.
  • Student Perspectives — Who better to introduce you to the rhythms and seasons of student life here at Cornerstone University than members of our student body. Hear from them about their campus experiences so far and see why they rank their experience in our student-focused learning community as being among their most formative, shaping set of years.
