Campus Life

Experience SAGU at 1200 Sycamore

Your experience at SAGU reaches beyond academics. Build authentic relationships, experience powerful worship services, and watch or participate in exciting athletics. You will be a valued member of our Lion family – building faith and minds together.


We value chapel – joining together in praise and worship and listening to the Word. Tuesday through Friday, speakers from our campus and all around speak and share their testimony.


SAGU offers a wide range of dorms – each with benefits depending on your personal preferences. Be close to the action, or enjoy a quiet slice of life.


We value full-person support. Whether you need career advice, student counseling, healthful activities, or learning assistance, we have you covered.

Events, Concerts, and more

Throughout the year we have awesome events – concerts, contests, athletics and intramurals.

Battle of the Dorms

One day a year, the dorms compete in the Battle of the Dorms – a healthy dose of competition, bonding and appreciation for your new home. The day includes Sand Volleyball games, races, dorm spirit and food to fuel the fun. In the end, everyone leaves with a similar sense of pride. The winning dorm takes home the prized, “Battle Vac” to display in their dorm.


Each year on the lawn in front of Collins Hall, students get together for music, comedy and snacks. A make-shift stage is built. Couches and blankets adorn the grass. And students enjoy an evening under the Texas stars supporting friends.


A week full of spirit, tradition, and SAGU lion pride. Homecoming gives students, faculty, staff and alumni, the opportunity to cheer on the home team, attend alumni awards ceremonies, tailgate, and participate in decorating the dorms. It’s a week to show off your Lion for Life mindset.

Christmas at SAGU

Imagine a campus decorated in strands of beautiful lights. Each year in November, we get together for pictures with Santa, hot chocolate, cookies, music, ornament decorating and the traditional “lighting of the lawn.”

Campus Days

Twice each year, the campus erupts with interested students. Campus days gives an opportunity to experience dorm living, Late Night Worship, Black Box Theater Sessions, campus tours and more.

Welcome Week

The first week of Fall and Spring semester, new students will attend New Student Orientation. It’s a way to launch your SAGU experience. Set up your classes, connect with professors, learn about how to get involved with clubs and ministries, etc.


Year-long, students can expect to engage in Recreation Life by getting involved with leagues and tournaments. Enjoy sand volleyball, flag football, indoor soccer, basketball, ping-pong (table tennis), water polo, and indoor ultimate frisbee.
