Welcome to SAGU's first-ever SAGU Today: Digital Edition. This special issue, which features the College of Bible and Church Ministries, provides many highlights that we would be unable to provide in the traditional print edition. Be sure to check out the embedded videos, galleries and special lecture content.
The next print edition will be a special President's Report scheduled for release this summer.
As you will see in this edition, 2013 is a monumental year. Please watch the special video below.
Record numbers of undergraduate students enrolled this spring—following a year where SAGU graduated 429 students, including our first cohort from the Master of Organizational Leadership.
Mission TEN Update
While we're attracting record numbers of students to campus, we're sending record numbers out to reach the world. By the end of Summer, SAGU students will have visited more than 100 countries in only 4 years—moving closer to our goal of reaching every country and Chinese and Indian province by 2020.
NAIA National Finalists
You likely realize by now that I am a huge sports fan. So, you can imagine my joy in reporting that SAGU men's basketball finished the season no. 2 in the nation! This is a historic achievement. Under the steady hand of head coach Donnie Bostwick, this squad won the Red River Athletic Conference and climbed all the way to national finals—an impressive feat for a team that began the season ranked no. 35 in the national coaches poll. Their impressive play also led to national exposure on ESPN3 and CBS Sports Network for the NAIA semi-finals and finals.
World Communication Center
I hope you are following the progress on the World Communication Center (WCC). If not, you need to jump over to the WCC progress page to see the latest updates. 3i has been forging ahead. Steel construction is complete. Much of the external brickwork has been completed. And internal construction is underway.
With so many big things happening, we are providing a window into the depth of the SAGU experience through SAGUtv. Guests from more than 120 countries have tuned in to watch content like Special Lecture Series that showcase the caliber of SAGU faculty and more than 100 chapel, worship and prayer recordings that provide a glimpse of our ongoing commitment to spiritual formation.
Thank you for helping spread the word about the things happening at SAGU. SAGU's future is brighter than ever, and you share a part of our continued success.
