This semester’s first student body is scheduled for Friday, March 29, at 11 a.m. for all university freshmen, sophomores and juniors. According to Ben Hicks, senior Bible major and senior student body chaplain, the theme for student body is “Secrets to True and Lasting Joy,” taken from John 15:11. “We want [the theme] to be encouraging and uplifting this semester,” Hicks said. “Last semester’s theme was more exhortational.” The program will include video testimonies and more congregational singing than last semester.

Seniors will meet separately in Stratton Hall for their own student body program. “It [will be] a reflective time of what God has done in the last four years for the senior class,” said Abbi Gregory, senior nursing major and senior class representative. She said the theme for senior body is “Running the Race,” based on Hebrews 12:1-2. Senior body will include a slide show, testimonies, singing and a challenge.
